An incarnated tale of contemporary Antigone.
Act 1.To be a woman or the imperfect embodiment of a «monster».
Act 2. To not be at all.

This work consists of hearing and questioning the voices that inhabit us saying: «I am here, I exist» through the female figure of Antigone. Beyond this however, there is a much more powerful voice that muffles the sound of them all saying: «you will listen to me!».

Saïda is exploring the figure of Antigone as a powerful and fallen queen. The idea is to verbalise this state of grace and disgrace through this fierce state that sometimes inhabits us in the day to day, at the edge of the unspeakable.
The performance will be the synopsis of a partial view of the world, a mirage of chaos, a possibility, a sublime.
