From Goethe Institut:

Adapted from the famous Greek play “Antigone”, the first written and the last in the timeline of Sophocles’ Theban trilogy, Antigone – Âm Mù is the newest staging of XplusX Studio. By adopting the philosophical concept of Singularity as the main theme for this interpretation of the classic tragedy, XplusX Studio starts its first experiments in Immersive Theater, aiming to bring a new unique theatrical experience to the audience. The stage design is site-specific, and the audience is invited to move around, to actively engage and interact with any element of the artistic setting throughout the screening.

The stage performance of the original play ‘Antigone’ which was pre-recorded in the form of a multi-dimensional video call, had its premiere last November on a virtual platform named Discord. This first screening was displayed simultaneously with constructed, poly-phonical responsive scripts to create a sense of the virtual world where the adaptation takes place. The second screening was presented at the Goethe-Institut, where the play was placed in a post-event setting, a banquet of what remains – Antigone exists no more, there is only projection, retelling, replay.

At Manzi Art Space this April, once again, Antigone – Âm Mù will be staged and presented in a new version. A totally new stage promises new experiences awaiting the audience.
