Sophocles‘ Antigone is one of the most-analyzed and -interpreted greek tragedies ever. But the figurehead is exhausted. Antigone wants to be lived through, not shown. It is not just our material, but model – blueprint of an artistic practice of self-empowerment.

17 artists first developed independent positions and different formats, which finally resonated with each other: animation, video, choreography, text, sculpture and music met and formed a temporary network on 3 performance evenings, that wanted to exist under mutually agreed arrangements. In this project, we wanted to find out if the boundaries between the individual and the group can be fluid.

Our Antigones line up or interpenetrate each other and assert themselves in their sovereignty. We meet in the coagulated version of an opera, in a collective process in which conflicts are endured and negotiated.
