Antigone in the World is a production of Sophocles’ tragedy Antigone, performed by a young, international, and ethnically diverse company of actors in unconventional theater spaces and for people around the world who live in overlooked communities, such as townships, refugee camps and prisons.

Antigone in the World will perform for free, for audiences theatre has much to gain from.

Side by side with the performances will be dialogue on the issues of the play, created in conjunction with local community organizations, over central ideas of civilization, including the inevitable clash between society’s edicts and the individual’s conscience, the rights of women, and those things due, as matters of basic humanity, to both the living and the dead.
