Antigone - 2015 - Off-Broadway

$21-$114.75

Should love or law guarantee the dignity of the dead? With unvarnished intensity, Oscar-winning actor Juliette Binoche (In-I, 2009 Next Wave), Olivier-winning director Ivo van Hove (Angels in America, 2014 Next Wave), and poet and MacArthur fellow Anne Carson—offering a new colloquial translation—pare Sophokles' great question to the tragic bone. In Thebes, Antigone has refuted King Kreon's (Patrick O’Kane) order: that her traitorous brother's body be left to rot outside the city gates. Vast monochrome videoscapes of sun and moon, sand and snow provide the backdrop to Van Hove's taut, unsentimental account of a woman who, as removed from life as she is from death, ends up taking both into her own hands.

Schedule

With a keen eye for the most well-coordinated staging of any online production I have seen to date, director Carrie Keranen has expertly adapted the blocking from the staged 2018 play to make it appear the socially distancing cast members appearing in individual boxes are actually in the same apartment together. Surrounded by a multitude of moving boxes with the appropriate sistera??s name emblazoned upon them, unpacked items are handed off between blocks, with several props thrown between the squares with perfect aim and timing. Truly this production is at the forefront of a new creative challenge, and I cannot wait to watch as online theatre brings the world closer together through the Arts.
