Antigone Arkhe

Play script (English)

Notes:

An archivist narrates a kind of tour of a museum's holdings —related to Antigone —while a living statue and film footage recreate moments from the Greek tragedy.

This play was originally part of The Antigone Project, which comprises four other pieces:Tanya Barfield's Medallion, Karen Hartman's Hang Ten, Lynn Nottage's A Stone's Throw and Chiori Miyagawa's Red Again. The Antigone Project was originally commissioned by the NYC-based company Crossing Jamaica Avenue in response to the USA Patriot Act. This project was conceived and curated by Chiori Miyagawa and Sabrina Peck.
