Experiences from event


Don't miss the opportunity to see the live performance of Antigone Retold, a modern retelling of the classic tale of Antigone, the daughter of the cursed house of Oedipus, and an anachronistic feminist icon who was ahead of her time. With a talented international cast and team hailing from both the UAE and South Africa, this production promises to be an engaging and immersive experience.

The play is part of a larger interactive experience that includes installations and other elements, which took place in November and was proudly supported by the Emirates Literature Foundation. If you are looking for an unique live experience, this play is perfect for you. Antigone Retold is not just about theatrical performance, it's also an exploration of a classic story in a new way, it will make you think and question the society, past, present and future.

Date/Time: Friday 3 February 2023 20:00-21:00 Venue: MBRL Amphitheatre, Mohammed Bin Rashid Library, Al Jaddaf - Dubai Language: English Session No: 194
