From the entrails of the fratricidal war in Colombia and from the vision that of the tragedy raises the Spanish philosopher Maria Zambrano, we propose an Antigone that meets, in her tomb, all her race. An epilogue that develops in the place where Sophocles left Antigone: displaced from life and displaced from death, the tomb expands to represent the world and the human condition. Antigone with her intrinsic ethics and sense of freedom, returns to pulsate, with her sacrifice, the circulatory system of her genealogy. Summarizing, she tries to answer a question that chases her: “Can sorry flourish there where the terror sowed deserts?”
A multidisciplinary performance of great visual impact, which combines multimedia language with mask, text and music.
