“Your freedom, your laws, your nation –
do I have any part in it?”
Thebes is now a ruin surrounded by refugee camps. Police violence, terrorists and demagogues abound. At its heart Antigone X is a play about the place of women and femininity and the power to resist and reclaim that which belongs to them; it is a story about civil disobedience, written in direct response to the current administration. At what point do we draw the line? At what point do we stand up? Who do we answer to in the end, our proverbial king or a higher authority within ourselves? Antigone X is a contemporary meditation on love, power and war, based on the classic by Sophocles.
