ANTIGONE. I FEEL LIKE HITTING SOMEONE AGAIN! TURNS HER GAZE ON THE MYTH OF SOPHOCLES’ ANTIGONE AND INSISTS ON UPDATING IT IN CONTEMPORARY SOCIETY. WITH A SHARP AND FURIOUS GAZE, THE PLAY UNLEASHES REFLECTIONS ON FAMILY TIES, MODELS OF BEHAVIOR AND BANALITY, IMPOSED BY RELATIONS OF POWER AND SUBJUGATION.
ANTIGONE IS AN ODE TO LIFE AND DEATH THAT ALSO REBELS WITH THE CONVENTIONAL STAGE SPACE, BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL, INVITING THE PARTICIPATION OF THE AUDIENCE AND MOBILIZING ITS PLACEMENT IN SPACE THROUGH INTER-DISCIPLINARY LANGUAGE THAT CHALLENGES THE LIMITS OF REPRESENTATION AND PRESENCE.
ANTIGONE, I FEEL LIKE HITTING SOMEONE AGAIN! IS THE FIRST PART OF A TRIPTYCH MADE UP OF PENTESILEA AND ECHO, THE NYMPH, WHICH MAKE THEIR ORIGINAL QUESTIONS MORE COMPLEX BY SITUATING THEM IN THE FACE OF TODAY’S WORLD.
Like an ode to love, to life and death the furious cry of Antigone rises. Her voices yell out for life after death, they cry out for death as birth, in an attempt at inner peace.
There is always someone who is bothering you, the time passes, you are fine, and someone comes back to fuck you, that is why, “ I feel like hitting someone again...”
Cry No! To demand an explanation, to lose the reason and to find it in others, passionately reaffirm individual freedom, human dignity, awareness of free will and personal commitment.
Antigone, is a cry to love that becomes silence, love that hurts, that tortures, that does not know in whom it rests or where it is.
Her presences traverse in complicity the margins of her existence, witnesses of the neighboring abyss, they become victims of their victimizers and blur their own limits and play, play... they play like children to exist.
