Would you risk everything for what you believe?
A young girl ready to die to defend what she thinks is right. A king determined to impose his will as the rule of law. Antigone, Interrupted re-imagines a classic story for the modern world through the body and the voice of a single performer.
Scottish Dance Theatre Artistic Director Joan Clevillé presents an intimate solo work specifically commissioned for rural venues, created in collaboration with acclaimed performer Solène Weinachter.
Using his distinctive mixture of dance, theatre, and storytelling, Clevillé examines the notion of dissent in democracy, and how the female body can be the target of oppression but also a powerful tool for resistance.
In his first creation as Artistic Director of Scottish Dance Theatre, choreographer Joan Clevillé and performer Solène Weinachter present a solo show based on the play Antigone by Sophocles.
Using his distinctive mixture of dance, theatre and storytelling, Clevillé creates the emotion, passion and integrity of a full Greek play in a one-woman piece, for a contemporary audience.
"Greek tragedies are supposed to have lots of people on stage wearing fancy costumes and masks…you have only me so wish me luck!" Solene
