MORE ABOUT THE SHOW: ANTIGONICK: The original hero of silenced women, Antigone, stands against tyranny and injustice through her words and deeds. In this new telling of Sophokles' classic tale, poet and translator Anne Carson presents an Antigone both inspiring and contemporary. With rich poetic language driving the action, Taffety Punk presents this epic story with an ensemble of actors, dancers, and musicians.
THE FRAGMENTS OF SAPPHO: Starting with Anne Carson's unparalleled translation of all that remains of Sappho's poetry, choreographer Katie Sopoci Drake and director Marcus Kyd lead an ensemble of dancers, actors, and musicians to explore the tension of loss and signal decay. Can we know what is lost through what has been found?
This double-header will occupy 90 minutes of show time.
