Antigone, Interrupted


Scottish Dance Theatre presents
Wed 13 May
Antigone_main

What do you do when the state becomes the oppressor? Would you put your body on the line?

A young girl ready to die to defend what she thinks is right.
A king determined to impose his will as the rule of law. 

Antigone, Interrupted re-imagines a classic story for a contemporary world through the body and the voice of a single performer.

In his first creation as Artistic Director of Scottish Dance Theatre, choreographer Joan Clevillé (Plan B for Utopia, The North)presents an intimate solo work with acclaimed performer Solène Weinachter. Using his distinctive mixture of dance, theatre and storytelling, Clevillé examines the notion of dissent in democracy, and how the female body can be the target of oppression but also a powerful tool for resistance.

AGE RECOMMENDATION: 12+

SHOW LENGTH: 60 MINUTES (NO INTERVAL)

PERFORMER: SOLÈNE WEINACHTER
