Ursa Maior Teatro

Raccontano le storie

Antigone belongs to a primitive world where reason confines with an imaginary reality; where the future can be read in the fires of the sacrifices and in the flights of the birds, where the Gods display themselves with thunderbolts and storms, and the Nature takes part in the Mortals’ misfortunes.

In this world Antigone opposes the law of love to human's law, and she is defeated. “Great words of prideful men are ever punished with great blows. Wisdom is the supreme part of happiness.”

In loving memory of Gabriella De Giovanni.

Words by Giovanna Lima, inspired by Sophocles’ Antigone.
