ANTIGONICK

Big Dance Theater’s latest work, Antigonick, is a rough cut of Anne Carson’s one-act, radical-feminist,philosophical take on Sophocles’ Antigone.

In Carson’s theatrical perspective on Antigone’s role as a humanist and antagonist, the intellectual excitement of Antigonick lies in how she loses, why her peaceful resistance matters, and the sobering consequences of the Antigone/ Kreon face-off.
