Image from Antigone Exp. N°2

Antigone, an icon of civil disobedience and self-determination, is the starting point of this creation which questions the phenomena and mechanisms of influence and mobilization of the masses. How to interpret law and justice? Where does individual responsibility begin? AGORA works at the interface of theater, music and digital media and invites the audience to an augmented reality experience in which the ensemble LUX:NM enriches Traetta’s baroque composition with contemporary and electronic sounds. The spectators are immersed in the universe of Antigone and oscillate between reality and virtuality.
