Antigona by José Watanabe

9 - 13 July 2024, 7.30 pm

The sun rises on Thebes in the aftermath of a war between heirs as a Narradora breathes in the “transparent air” of peace, and the people briefly “start to forget” the violence. Ignoring pleas to “Listen to the People. Listen to the Heavens,” the new king denies burial rights to the losing brother, an act of tyranny with devastating consequences.


Originally presented in 2000 by the Yuyachkani theatre, this radical remaking of Sophocles’ ancient Greek parable, brought to life by one woman, reflects the struggle for humanity to transcend oppression which leads to deafening silence, but does not bring peace.


This project is made possible with the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Barons Court Theatre, Winchester Dondero Cultural Center, WEST: World of English Speaking Theatres, and Out of the Wings.
