The Antigone Project

co-Conceived and devised by Annie Saunders of Wilderness and B. Wolff, Directed by B. Wolff

Set inside a massive blanket fort, this intimate and eerie adaptation of the Antigone myth centers on the relationship of the famous heroine and the brother she dies to bury. An exploration of the sibling-bond at its most carnal that examines inner-generational relationships and the challenges they pose to individuality.
