Antigone, Interrupted re-imagines the Greek tragedy for a contemporary world through the body of a single performer.
In his first creation as Artistic Director of Scottish Dance Theatre, choreographer Joan Clevillé (Plan B for Utopia, The North) presents this intimate solo performance by Solène Weinachter (Lost Dog - Juliet & Romeo). 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.
