The goal of Antigone of Syria is to run an open workshop where Syrian women refugees have a safe place to express their bodies and their minds. Their hard work culminated in three performances at Al Madina Theatre, Beirut in December 2014
The women who we welcome on to the project engage with one another in many ways, including by recounting their personal stories from Syria. We are then working together to blend some of these stories into the ancient Greek text. The end result will be a 21st century Syrian adaptation of Sophocles’ tragic tale.
