About the Project

Antigona is a theatrical flamenco interpretation of the text and themes in Sophocles' classic play. Scored by a mix of contemporary and ancient musical forms that express the emotion and catharsis of the story, at its heart, Antigona resonates with the roots of flamenco which is based not in any one culture or religion but on the strength of family - Antigone's story is her humanity and her quest to bury her brother regardless of the circumstances. With choreography by Martin Santangelo, co-direction by Lee Breuer and principal dancer Soledad Barrio in the title role embodying Antigone's vast feminine strength.
