In the midst of a bombed-out city still feeling the aftershocks of war, the rebellious and intense Antigone defies her uncle to bury her disgraced brother. This contemporary response to the myth of Antigone brings powerful, modern prose to an ancient and universal story. This short screening is made possible by Northwestern Faculty member Roger Ellis who choreographed the piece. The film will be streamed online with a talkback included.

Patrons will receive a link via e-mail that will allow them to view the performance On Demand during Nov. 12-19.

The Wirtz Center for the Performing Arts is proud to share this work originally produced by the UC Davis Department of Theatre and Dance.
