A new work, based on Sophocles’ ancient play ‘Antigone’.

“Time will tell that the future’s ours!”

The Antigone Sound features graduating third-year actors collaborating with staff, former staff and graduates of the school. The creative and production teams bring together skilled practitioners alongside current students.

Sophocles wrote Antigone circa 496BC - 406 BC. Toi Whakaari director of actor training, Heather Timms and former associate director Penny Fitt are collaborating with graduates Ana Scotney and Comfrey Sanders on this exciting adaptation.

“Greek Theatre was made for the people about what was going on in the world,” says Timms. “We’ve re-imagined Antigone for ourselves now; the personal and the political in a performance arena.”

Antigone is a young woman, inside a crisis, standing up to power.

The question is: What if there’s no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’? What if everyone has got a ‘valid’ point of view? What happens when you drive your position home at the cost of relationship?
