The Culture of Emilia-Romagna

France, Motus: Alexis. A greek tragedy

How to transform indignation into action?” This simple and enormous question sent us on the tracks of Antigone: a backward glance, listening to her radiant stubbornness, in order to reflect on the present.

We worked at recomposing the tragic events into an original play, using a script impregnated with the biographies and personal experiences of the actors involved. An itinerary begun in 2008 from which three contests emerged:  Let The Sunshine In, Too Late! and Iovadovia.

Alexis. A Greek Tragedy,  by Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò. Cast Silvia Calderoni, Vladimir Aleksic, Benno Steinegger, Alexia Sarantopoulou. This performance stands at the end of this journey though it presupposes the beginning: 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
