Motus at the GREC Festival

Too Late!_(antigone)contest #2                               

devised and directed by Enrico Casagrande & Daniela Nicolò, with Silvia Calderoni and Vladimir Aleksic, dramaturgy Daniela Nicolò

A Motus production in collaboration with Fondazione del Teatro Stabile di Torino and Festival delle Colline Torinesi and the support of Magna Grecia Festival ’08, L’Arboreto – Teatro Dimora di Mondaino, Regione Emilia-Romagna and Ministero della Gioventù – Progetto GECO

Syrma Antigónes, according to Pausanias, was apparently the name of a place near Thebes and the trace of Antigone –  title of the overall project –  is the ancient name of a site where Polynices’ death appears to have taken place. The project draws an imaginary cartography of the sense of revolt. Sophocles’ heroine, in the Brecht interpretation, is the guide in this itinerary begun in 2008 from which three contests emerged, performances intended as confrontations/dialogues between Antigone-Silvia Calderoni and three different actors: Benno Steinegger-Polynices, Vladimir Aleksic-Creon and Gabriella Rusticali-Tiresias, entitled Let The Sunshine In, Too Late! and Iovadovia. In 2010 was premiered Alexis. Una Tragedia Greca, which stands at the end of this project.

"In August 2010 we went to Greece to retrace direct testimony of the killing, by a policeman, of fifteen year old Alexandros-Andreas Grigoropoulos (Alexis) which happened during our first study workshop for Antigone: a “Polynices” with a Sex Pistols T-shirt… This event led us to shift the Antigone-project in an increasingly declared manner towards the theme of contemporary revolt. Alexis was shot by a policeman, on 6th December ‘08, one Saturday night like many others in the Exarchia quarter of central Athens. The episode, bloody and violent as it was, seems almost epiphenomenic. It was definitely not a fortuitous incident: it was the fuse that set off a chain explosion and it would be easy, if questionable, to link it up with the violent revolts that have struck European metropolises over the last few years… Alexis’ death triggered a people’s insurrection without precedent".
