From the imagination of Lena Kitsopoulou, the Greek stage's preeminent wild child, comes a peculiar metamorphosis of an ancient Greek tragedy: Sophocles' Antigone, staged as a comedy. Can it be done? A quartet of skiers are invited to deliver a panel discussion on Antigone. This absurd premise quickly takes a dark spin which stays true to the motifs of the original play, all the while offering a satirical and desperate "here and now" take on it.
