Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 11/22/1991
"...Dazzling, demanding....It is a bold, triumphantly ambitious and successful attempt to fuse dance and mime with sound and image to bring fresh meaning to Sophoclean tragedy..."

Product Description:

A lush adaptation of the classic tragedy by Sophocles told through dance, action, and music from avant garde luminaries such as Glenn Branca and Elliott Sharp, Amy Greenfield's ANTIGONE provides a uniquely illuminating modern spin on the classic Greek tragedy. ANTIGONE is the final chapter of the tragic Oedipus cycle and it begins as King Creon refuses Polynices, Antigone's brother, a proper burial for the sin of committing fratricide. Incensed, Antigone holds a token ceremony for her brother in defiance of the king's authority, provoking his anger.
