Anne Carson's Modern Adaptation of AntigonE

"We Begin in the dark...."

Band of Toughs present a workshop showing of Anne Carson's adaptation of Sophocles' Antigone.  This isn't your grandma's Greek tragedy.

This performance is a "collaboratory" session. In our collaboratories, Band of Toughs invites you, the audience, into the room as collaborators. The work-in-progress showing is followed by a discussion, and feedback is incorporated into the development of the project.

This project is funded in part by grants from the Boulder Arts Commission, an agency of the Boulder City Council; the Boulder County Arts Alliance; the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District; and Colorado Creative Industries. We're grateful to Boulder Quest Center and Naropa University's MFA Theatre: Contemporary Performance program for their generous sponsorship of rehearsal and performance venues for the Antigonick project. You can learn more about these organizations on our sponsors page.
