Ainda Não Temos Imagens de Guerra Onde Nasça o Amor.
A.N.T.Í.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’s new perspective on Sophocles’ 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.Í.G.O.N.A provides a broad canvas for the exploration of these themes, thus “plucking up courage and renewing empathy”. This rescueturgy, staged by Gonçalo Amorim, tells the story of A.N.T.Í.G.O.N.A, the multidisciplinary collective of activists that managed to put an end to capitalism.
