Description

Irreverent and full of rage, this rewriting of an eternal myth unfolds with haunting clarity. This modern, unflinching tragedy reveals in the glare of death a muted and luminous kind of poetry. Antigone is that meagre little thing over there, who sits and says nothing. In a moment, she will rise from the dusky little girl no-one took seriously at all to face the world, and her uncle Creon, who is the king. She will become Antigone. She knows that she will die – that she is young – and that she too, might have preferred to live.
