ANTIGONICK

May 2014

Scatterstate Theater, San Jose Historic Armory

 

Written by Sophocles

Translated by Anne Carson

Direction and Sceneography by Caitlyn Tella

Lighting Design by Sarah Flanagan

Costume Design by Emarie Kohlmoos

Music composed by Yvette Holzwarth

When Antigone buries her brother she joins his rank as a traitor to the state.  For her crime, Kreon, uncle and ruler, shuts Antigone in a cave to die slowly and quietly, away from the paralyzed public. But even in death Antigone refuses to submit to her uncle's man-made plans.

Antigonick is Anne Carson’s version of Sophokles’ prizewinning tragedy. Here, Scatterstate presents a layered and spectral trip into the heart of the ancient dialectic between state and family, law and conscience, earth and cosmos. Created by an all-female cast and design team at the Historic San Jose Armory.
