Antigona is based on an adaptation of Sophocles’ Antigone in the version by Dudley Fitts & Robert Fitzgerald. Antigone was the first feminine heroine written for the stage. She was not afraid to show her strength, her pain, and her passion, all attributes that are deep at the heart of flamenco.
“As a flamenco dancer, Ms. Barrio is known for ferocity and intense drama, as well as for her ability to convey tenderness. There is a formal beauty to her movements, whether she is unleashing a torrent of steps or simply walking across a stage. The New York Times dance critic Alastair Macaulay has called her ’one of today’s great dancers of any genre.’” – Susan Hartman, The New York Times
Noche Flamenca’s Antigona reinterprets the text and themes of Sophocles’ classic play featuring the fiery talent of acclaimed dancer Soledad Barrio, to depict the battle between an individual, disenfranchised woman and the authority of the state and its patriarchy.
