A N T I G O N E
A sister, all she ever wants is to honor and bury her brother.
This brother of hers was and still a traitor to the nation according to King Creon.
Whoever buries him will receive death in return says he.
Brave ANTIGONE honors her dear brother Polyneikes over and over and over again.
For her death is long and certain. It is the only absolute. She does not fear it.
Her bold stance against death and her peace with it has been creeping under the skin of its audience for centuries now.
If ANTIGONE would be a citizen as much as she were a sister and Creon a father as much as he would be a leader. Would there be any room for compromise? asks Hegel.
V O I D's production of ANTIGONE sets itself in a dystopic yet graceful atmosphere that culture clashes the Anatolian and Greek motifs.
The traditional value is tremendously heightened and yet minimally styled.
