Directed by faculty member Christine Brubaker, this unfaithful re-telling of Sophocles’ original is more rave than play. antigone lives* combines techno, despair, and family politics in a 200-bpm exploration of the carcass of democracy and notions of revolution. “I love new plays. Their imperfection, their upstart-ness, their unpredictability, and the shared surprise with the first audiences. antigone lives* is just that,” says Brubaker, in a statement. antigone lives* runs October 12 to 20, 2018 at the Reeve Theatre, University of Calgary (210 University Court NW) and is suggested for ages 14+. The 2:00pm show on October 14 also features a talkback with Fournier and a reception.
