A young girl ready to die to defend what she thinks is right. A king determined to impose his will as the rule of Law.

Antigone, Interrupted re-imagines a classic story for a contemporary world through the body and the voice of a single performer. Scottish Dance Theatre artistic director Joan Clevillé presents an intimate solo work created in collaboration with acclaimed performer Solène Weinachter.
