Antígona
by Víctor Ullate

(2019)

This version of Antigone, freely adapted from Sophocles’ original work, explores human beings’ struggle against their rash and impetuous rationale, their irreducible passions and their nature.

 

‘Fascinated by Sophocles’ timeless reflections on human nature, we decided to create Antigone with our company, the Víctor Ullate Ballet, for the only ancient Roman theatre in Merida. Overwhelmed by the wealth of thoughts and wisdom that Sophocles expressed in this cruel and archaic tragedy, our focus of interest are the feelings that are as old as humanity itself. Mainly inspired by the conflict of each character, we trust in the power of dance: it allows entry into the realms of universal emotions like no other art form. Like always, the eternal question is on fate: ‘That which fate has destined for each person is impossible to avoid’.
