5 of 5 "Thought-provoking, thrilling and enthralling " -The Skinny

4 of 5 "a tour de force in storytelling, and its compelling pulse makes a two-and-a-half-thousand-year-old play feel extraordinarily relevant" -The List

What do you do when the state becomes the oppressor? Would you put your body on the line?

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 reimagines a classic story for a contemporary world through the body and the voice of a single performer.

Scottish Dance Theatre Artistic Director Joan Clevillé presents an intimate solo work 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.

Received with rave reviews and sold-out performances from Shetland, to theatres in Edinburgh and London; Antigone, Interrupted combines all the intensity and passion of Greek tragedy with a fresh perspective and a dash of humour.
