Scottish Dance Theatre presents Joan Clevillé's 'Antigone, Interrupted'
Commissioned by the Rural Touring Dance Initiative in association with Perth Theatre.
What do you do when the state becomes the oppressor? Would you put your body on the line? What if disobedience was the only alternative to injustice?
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 a contemporary world through the body and the voice of a single performer.
Using his distinctive mixture of dance, theatre and storytelling, choreographer Joan Clevillé (Plan B for Utopia, The North) presents an intimate solo work in his first creation as Artistic Director of Scottish Dance Theatre. Together with acclaimed performer Solène Weinachter, they examine the notion of dissent in our democracies and how the female body can be the target of oppression but also a powerful tool for resistance.
This performance will be followed by a post-show discussion with Joan Clevillé and Solène Weinachter on Fri 14 Feb.
