Antigone: Then and Now, Here and There
Based on Sophocles’ classical tragedy

Monday, Sept. 18
7:00 pm
Room 161, John Mitchell Building

North Studion, 118 Science Place

Reception to follow at the Museum of Antiquities
Room 106, 107 Administration Place

An hour of performance, reflection and round table discussion, exploring the exciting intersections of language, story and culture. A discussion will follow the performance.

A group of performing artists (and academics) seek reconciliation by exploring Sophocles' Antigone and traditional Cree stories, creating something entirely new in the process.

Antigone, Sophocles’ tale of a young woman who defies the law to follow her own sense of morality and justice, is especially important in these “post-truth” times. In this performance, the artists blend Antigone with traditional Cree stories to create an entirely new piece that attempts to reconcile European and Indigenous traditions.

Led by Curtis Peeteetuce, an award-winning Cree actor, playwright and director, and featuring Alex Hartshorn (BFA '11), Charlie Peters (BFA '13), Colin Dingwall, Marcel Petit and Wanita Bird.
