Gardens of the Future
About the performance:
Suppose the heroes of Antigone came to the present and watched the news – how would they re-act? What would they have to tell us and what would we like to learn from them?
Power, resistance, hubris. Then, Now and After.
In the centre of a multimedia installation, three female performers share all the roles of the tragedy, interpolating their own views and experiences and intervening in the stage action. Only mediated through a screen can the fifteen members of the chorus have access to this restricted and decayed financial centre, in order to negotiate, to claim or to refuse their individual responsibility.
