Antigone - A new adaptation by Slavoj Zizek
Broom Street Theater is proud to present the premiere of Slavoj Zizek's adaptation of Antigone, directed by Christopher William Wolter.

iek's intensely controversial adaptation of Antigone seeks to challenge the traditional readings of the classic play. The character of Antigone is universally celebrated as the ultimate figure of ethical resistance to state power which oversteps its legitimate scope and as the defender of simple human dignity (more important than all political struggles). But is she really so innocent and pure? What if there is a dark side to her? What if Creon, the representative of state power, also has a valuable point to make? And what if both Antigone and Creon are part of a problem that only a popular intervention can confront?

iek's Antigone offers an ethical and political intervention into the complexities of desire; a biting commentary on the conflicts between the state and the family, the individual and the collective, love and duty, revolutionary violence and the security of the status quo.
