A.N.T.脥.G.O.N.A

Description

Ainda N茫o Temos Imagens de Guerra Onde Nas莽a o Amor.

A.N.T.脥.G.O.N.A was created out of the traces left by the many and various texts written around Antigone (rewritings, essays, approximations). This polysemic approach, reinforced by the creative support of a multidisciplinary team of artists, lies at the base of the Teatro Experimental do Porto鈥檚 new perspective on Sophocles鈥 play. At a time when such concepts as democracy, citizenship, justice and human rights are making an urgent comeback to the order of the day, this universal story is ripe for a revival. And, while our empathy with Antigone is quite unanimous, such unanimity can seem strange, when history shows that we have often opted to side with Creon. The polysemy of A.N.T.脥.G.O.N.A provides a broad canvas for the exploration of these themes, thus 鈥減lucking up courage and renewing empathy鈥. This rescueturgy, staged by Gon莽alo Amorim, tells the story of A.N.T.脥.G.O.N.A, the multidisciplinary collective of activists that managed to put an end to capitalism.
