“Antigone in Ferguson” was conceived in the wake of Michael Brown’s Jr.’s murder in 2014, through a collaboration between Theater of War Productions and community members from Ferguson, MO. “Antigone in Ferguson” fuses a dramatic reading by leading actors of Sophocles’ “Anitgone” with live choral music performed by a choir of educators, activists, police officers, youth, and concerned citizens from Ferguson and New York City. The performance is the catalyst for panel and audience-driven discussions about racialized violence, structural oppression, misogyny, gender violence, and social justice.
Translated, directed and facilitated by Bryan Doerries and music composed and conducted by Phil Woodmore.
This event is co-sponsored by Denison University.
