A re-imagination of a classic Sophocles story whose central question remains enduringly-relevant: what do you do when the state becomes the oppressor? Would you put your body on the line? Making his debut as Artistic Director of Scottish Dance Theatre, choreographer Joan Clevillé’s Antigone, Interrupted is an adaptation for our contemporary world, performed solo by the acclaimed Solène Weinachter.

Using his distinctive mixture of dance, theatre and storytelling, Clevillé examines the notion of dissent in democracy, and how the female body can be the target of oppression but also a powerful tool for resistance, in a portrayal of a young girl ready to die to defend what she thinks is right.

Having premiered at Perth Theatre 14th February, the performance continues to tour Scotland and northern England.
