Sitting on the stage of the Newman theater the audience witnesses a woman and a man in a desperate multi-level power struggle. Silvia/Antigone/Haemon faces Vladimir/Creon in a merciless set of challenges that amplify both power games between fathers and sons and those of contemporary "New Dictators" who also try to tame the disobedient ones. Motus, one of Italy's most adventurous theater companies, investigates Antigone with it's take-no-prisoners theatrical style.
