“Antigone” at the Alumnae Theatre September 18th – October 3rd

Alumnae Theatre

70 Berkeley Street, Toronto, Ontario M5A 2W6

The Alumnae Theatre Company announces our first production of the 2015-2106 season: Antigone, by Jean Anouilh, translated by Lewis Galantiere. This modernized version of the classic Greek tragedy explores the disturbing moral dilemmas of our times.

Director Janet Kish evokes a metaphysical Thebes in a parallel universe where the “here and now” is also the “there and then.” In collaboration with the actors, the work also incorporates movement choreographed by Jane Deluzio and masks sculpted by visual artist and scenographer Teodoro Dragonieri.

Special events planned for opening weekend, September 18-20:

Art Installation
View our Antigone-themed art installation created by renowned multi-discipline artist Teodoro Dragonieri in collaboration with Sara Ahmadieh Rad. On display in the lobby for the run of the show.
Opening night party
Meet the actors and production team after the show on Friday, September 18 in the lobby. Refreshments will be served. Cash bar.
Social Media Night!
On Saturday, September 19, you can keep your cell phone ON! You read that right. If you sit in the last three rows of the audience, you can text, tweet and send messages during the performance. Yes, DURING the show! Just NO flash photography, please.
Panel: Women of Courage
Join us from noon-1pm on Sunday, September 20 for our pre-matinee panel discussion with six “Antigones” of today: ordinary women who have exhibited extraordinary courage in our current day and age. The moderated panel will address such topics as mental illness, trangendered realities and living life as an amputee artist.
