The story of contemporary Antigona at Warsaw Theater Meetings
April 10, 2014
Antyhona, a play written by Dana Łukasińska and based on Sofokles’ Antigona will be shown at the Dramatyczny Theater in Warsaw on April 11 as part of the 34th Warsaw Theater Meetings
The spectacle, directed by Agnieszka Korytkowska-Mazur is brought to Warsaw by the Dramatyczny Theater in Białystok.
A story of the curse put on Creon and the house of the Labdakids, is transferred to the town of Krynki on the Polish-Soviet border. Theresa, much like Antigona, is a young girl fighting alone against a nepotistic family that cannot afford to lose power that preserves its status quo. The rights of both parties contradict each other and a compromise cannot be reached. There is too much at stake. No good solutions, no winners, everybody is guilty, everybody pays a heavy price trying to defend their choices. The story is reflected in some local legends. For the first time, the issue of “rectifying Polish-Belorussian borders” has been presented in an art form.
Cast: Justyna Godlewska-Kruczkowska, Krystyna Kacprowicz-Sokołowska, Agnieszka Możejko-Szekowska, Bernard Bania, Grzegorz Falkowski, Krzysztof Ławniczak, Aleś Malčanauˇ, Piotr Szekowski, Marek Szkoda, Mateusz Witczuk.
