Four Dead in Ohio; Antigone at Kent State
TIME: 7:30 pm
A collectively adapted performance based on Sophocles’ Antigone, using the version by Seamus Heaney, Burial At Thebes, as the core text. An ensemble of students will approach the core text and the incident at Kent State University in 1970 in which four students, protesting against the War in Vietnam, were shot and killed by the National Guard. Through research into this tragedy, we will create chorus sequences, re-configure the text, and define the world in which this story is told, Tansill Theater, Thursday-Saturday at 7:30 p.m., matinee 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, $8.00 general admission, $6.00 students, call 860-439-ARTS (2787).
