Description

Riot Antigone transforms Sophocles’ classic drama into a passionate, ritualistic rock concert, a call to action and a full-bodied theatrical event. An all-female punk band and its Chorus Leader sing songs about Antigone's turbulent internal emotional landscape in a woman-centric coming-of-age story. Influenced by the “Riot Grrrl” movement of the '90s, an underground music scene that gave rise to bands like Bikini Kill and Bratmobile, Seonjae Kim’s adaptation of Sophocles  tells the tale of a young woman finding the power of her voice. Kim describes the play’s soundtrack of explosive live music as “both homage to that movement and anthems for our politically turbulent times.”
