Big Dance Theater

Feb 27–29, 2004

ANTIGONE: as played and danced by the three fates on their way to becoming the three graces

“Deeply brilliant, people need to see this amazing company”
—New York Times

In this new production, a timeless classic goes through a psychic blender. Four women and a man gather in a war-torn wasteland to reimagine Antigone and the eternal friction between family and state. The result is visually arresting, emotionally resonant, exceptionally idiosyncratic dance-theater that resonates with you long after it’s over.
