"Girls cannot force their way against men"

The war has ended. Outside the city gates, declared a traitor, Antigone's brother lies unburied. 'Fires won't light, birds are shrieking unintelligible things and the wind is tearing the hair off trees.'

In defiance of her uncles' rule, Antigone stands on a line between city and desert, laws and gods. Fearlessly she steps into the wasteland to forge ahead with her brother's funeral, alone. Her act will trigger a cycle of destruction.

With bold movement and a cinematic synth score, Bristol Old Vic Young Company (The Love of the Nightingale) present this urgent translation of Antigone by award-winning Canadian poet Anne Carson.
