Antigone at the Border

Written by Marc David Pinate
Directed by Ricky Araiza

Borderlands Theater in Tucson teams up with Phoenix based Teatro Bravo for a groundbreaking collaboration of digital theatre-making. Antigone at the Border is a postcolonial reimagining of the Greek classic by Sophocles.  Ensemble members of Arizona’s two Latinx theater companies collaborate to interpret the story of Antigone Guzman, a DACA recipient and humanitarian aid worker who confronts her uncle, Creon Cardenas, the newly appointed border patrol chief of the Thebes sector in a battle of wills. Through livestream video and edited digital media, Antigone at the Border explores age-old questions of membership and belonging amongst Latinx border communities.
