Motus : Too late! (antigone) contest#2

Oslo - Norway, from 23/03/2012 to 25/03/2012 In Too Late ! Silvia/Antigone/Haemon faces Vladimir/Creon in a merciless mechanism of expositions and challenges that deceitfully amplify both power games between fathers and sons and those of contemporary “New Dictators” who, hiding behind the rhetoric of welfare and success achieved at all costs, also try to tame the avowed disobedient ones.

Too Late!_(antigone)contest #2

 devised and directed by Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò
with Silvia Calderoni and Vladimir Aleksic
a Motus production in collaboration with Fondazione del Teatro Stabile di Torino e Festival delle Colline Torinesi
and the support of  Magna Grecia Festival ’08, L’Arboreto – Teatro Dimora di Mondaino, Regione Emilia-Romagna e 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.

Too Late! is the second contest, where Silvia/Antigone/Haemon confront Vladimir/Creon in a merciless mechanism of expositions and challenges that deceitfully amplify both power games between fathers and sons, and those of contemporary “New Dictators”. Here the focus of this confrontation are power relations: from the smallest everyday intolerances to the degenerations of “The Fathers of Media” who act “for their children’s sake”: we enter the sphere of the intimate to strike at the heart of the untouchable Italian family. Biner has called Antigone “a tragedy of the too late”, since all the characters seem to act or come to their senses only after the irreparable. Is it maybe too late for us as well?
