Scottish Dance Theatre presents Antigone, Interrupted

October 29 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

An Crùbh

Received with rave reviews and sold-out performances from Shetland, to theatres in Edinburgh and London, Antigone, Interrupted combines all the intensity and passion of Greek tragedy with a fresh perspective and a dash of humour.
What do you do when the state becomes the oppressor? Would you put your body on the line?

A young girl ready to die to defend what she thinks is right. A king determined to impose his will as the rule of law. Antigone, Interrupted re-imagines a classic story for a contemporary world through the body and the voice of a single performer.

Scottish Dance Theatre Artistic Director Joan Clevillé presents an intimate solo work created in collaboration with acclaimed performer Solène Weinachter. Using his distinctive mixture of dance, theatre and storytelling, Clevillé examines the notion of dissent in democracy and how the female body can be the target of oppression but also a powerful tool for resistance.

This one-woman show is performed in the round and has been created for people who may have never encountered dance or classical theatre before.

Antigone, Interrupted was commissioned by the Rural Touring Dance Initiative in association with Perth Theatre. Developed with the support of Creative Scotland, Dancebase, The Place, Scottish School of Contemporary Dance, Dundee & Angus College and The Work Room. R&D of Antigone, Interrupted supported via South East Dance and Jerwood Charitable Foundation Dramaturg in Residence programme.
