Alumnae Theatre Company announces our first production of the 2015-2106 season: Antigone, by Jean Anouilh, translated Lewis Galantière. This modernized version of Sophocles’ classic Greek tragedy explores the disturbing moral dilemmas of our times.
Director Janet Kish evokes a metaphysical Thebes in a parallel universe where the “here and now” is also the “there and then.” In collaboration with the actors, the work also incorporates movement choreographed by Jane Deluzio, and masks sculpted by visual artist and scenographer Teodoro Dragonieri.
Special events are planned for opening weekend, September 18-20.
Art Installation on display in the lobby for the run of the show:
View our Antigone–themed art installation created by renowned multi-discipline artist Teodoro Dragonieri in collaboration with Sara Ahmadieh Rad.
Opening night party – Friday, September 18 :
Meet the actors and production team after the show on in the lobby. Refreshments will be served. Cash bar.
Social Media Night – Saturday, September 19:
If you sit in the last three rows of the audience, you can text, tweet and send messages during the performance. You read that right. Yes, DURING the show! Just NO flash photography, please.
Panel: Women of Courage – Sunday, September 20 :
Join us from noon-1pm for a pre-matinee panel discussion with six “Antigones” of today: ordinary women who have exhibited extraordinary courage in our current day and age. The moderated panel will address such topics as mental illness, trangendered realities and living life as an amputee artist.
Antigone runs Sept 18 – Oct 3.
