The American performer Ann Liv Young – an unclassifiable, hyperactive and demanding artist – explores the story of Antigone by concentrating on Bertolt Brecht’s 1948 version, which drew a comparison with the Third Reich, and in which Antigone became a (vain) figure of social resistance. Here, four performers unpick the relational dynamics between Haemon, Antigone and the chorus. Who are our lovers, our friends? And if our best friend the chorus is sleeping with our fiancé/e, would this discovery affect our wider decisions to go against society? A show which goes between the lines to examine how our current political climate is reflected in the questions already raised by Brecht – that is to say, the individual and collective possibilities for action in the face of fascism.
