From Goethe Institut:
‘Anti-gone’ is an experimental performance video focusing on the mental, spiritual state of Antigone, where unseen assumptions about a place, an indeterminate space, and a link between life and death are constantly ascertained. Here, she narrates, expressing her inner thoughts amidst a symbolic scene – a woman facing the most important yet lonely decisions, precarious yet ever grand and passionate.
Antigone is a famous tragedy written by the ancient Greek playwright Sophocles in 2500 B.C. ‘Anti-gone’ is not a retelling or a production of the play, and it does not aim to be a feminist or political declaration. ‘Anti-gone’ is a private view of a tragedy. It happens seemingly in a very strange setting (Greece of 2500 B.C.), yet still lies close to the Vietnamese lifeworld, as a comparison to the narratives in traditional theaters and to the women around us will show.
The premiere of ‘Anti-gone’ will be the occasion to immerse into the world of Antigone through the medium of theater-video, as well as the chance to engage in dialogue with the creative and production teams.
