A contemporary lyrical re-imagining based on Sophocles’ Antigone by NAMBI E. KELLEY
In present day Chicago, a woman mourns the death of her brothers, mowed down by a rival gang. Instead of dealing with the reality of violence in the city’s streets, her uncle intends to bury the bodies without investigation. Will she risk death by opposing her uncle? Using hip hop, poetry, dance, and dialogue that speaks with an urban voice, this re-imagining of Sophocles’ Antigone tells the story of a woman’s quest for her community’s truth.
This show contains adult situations and simulated violence.
