Antigona unites two fierce forms, flamenco and ancient Greek tragedy, to tell the story of one woman’s principled defiance of authority and quest to honour her late brother with a proper burial, regardless of the consequences. Adapted by Noche Flamenca’s artistic director Martin Santangelo from Sophocles’ Antigone, the multi-media piece blends a theatrical sensibility, visual artistry, live music, flamenco dance and poetic surtitles into a masterful whole that examines repression, heroism, loss and female empowerment, with tragic intensity.
