The New Antigone(s)
A timeless tale of ferocious courage and unshakeable conviction is revitalized by the Theatre Arts Department at University of the Pacific. Pacific Theatre Arts proudly presents the ageless Antigone in ways you've never witnessed before. Rediscover Antigone through a modern-day film and a stageplay that delves deeper into the heroines life. Join us for a transmedia adventure in war, loyalty, romance and persecution that you will never forget.
The New Antigone(s) is a well-rounded composition of the Antigone mythology, each work uncovering a different piece of the Antigone puzzle. When presented together, the production creates an in-depth image of the solitary woman who changed a nation. Pacific Theatre Arts presents Andie, a short film, and three segments of the stageplay ANTIGONE PROJECT: A PLAY IN 5 PARTS.
Andie, the screen adaptation by Gray Armagnac, tackles the classic tale in an accessible contemporary setting. Filled with romance, conflict, and tragedy, Andie promises to entertain as well as enlighten.
Pacific will be presenting three segments of The Antigone Project: A Play in 5 Parts, conceived by Chiori Miyagawa and Sabrina Peck. We will be presenting Hang Ten by Karen Hartman, Antigone Arkhe by Caridad Svich, and A Stones Throw by Lynn Nottage. Experience Antigone and sister Ismene tackling family affairs never before discussed, forever changing the way we view these two daughters of incest. Discover a historical Antigone juxtaposed against a digital Antigone as archival memory attempts to understand the inner workings of the immortal Antigone in a language that is beautifully poetic and wholly riveting. Witness Antigone as a mother and a lover almost unimaginable versions of the steadfast heroine and open your minds to consider the little-known woman behind the martyr.
