When brothers Eteocles and Polyneices, heirs to the throne of Thebes, slaughter each other in a civil war for the crown, their sisters Antigone and Ismene are left with only each other. But when their uncle and new king, Creon, decrees that only the loyalist Eteocles will have a burial, Antigone must choose between law and family, between obedience and justice. Sophocles' classical political drama is no less relevant today than it was when written nearly 2,500 years ago. In Innate Productions' adaptation under the direction of Farrell Paules, with dance choreography by Audrey Baran and fight choreography by Charles Holmes, the themes of civil rights, gender politics, and the necessity of antagonism in creating change shine a light on our current political and cultural landscape.
