Event description

Description

Tragedy, in theatre, is supposed to be a telling of the unbearable. In Ismene, the tragedies of Oedipus and Antigone have come and gone, leaving behind a young woman and an old tyrant. Ismene, sister of Antigone, is full of memories, fragments and traces of her sister that she shares with her uncle Creon, tyrant and executioner of his own family. What happens after the telling of the unbearable?

Ismene is contemporary retelling of Sophocles’ Antigone. Performed by an ensemble of eight women who share the roles of sisters Antigone and Ismene it is a musical, choral and visual exploration of the possibilities of old stories when they are told by young voices.
