Scottish Dance Theatre present ANTIGONE: INTERRUPTED

antigone

A defiant woman fighting to the death for what she believes. A king determined to impose his will at any cost…

Using the words of DON TAYLOR‘s canonical translation, Antigone, Interrupted re-imagines the Greek tragedy for a contemporary world through the body of a single performer.

In his first creation as Artistic Director of Scottish Dance Theatre, choreographer Joan Clevillé (Plan B for UtopiaThe North) presents this intimate solo performance by Solène Weinachter (Lost Dog – Juliet & Romeo). 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.
