A superb tragedy with contemporary resonances. The Arabic language takes on ancient Greek sounds. A rare poetic moment, aesthetic and moving, beyond time and borders. Universal.
"I am made for love, not for hatred," Antigone shouts before the facade of a high-tech palace. Beautiful and majestic in her hooded sweatshirt, hair in the wind, the young actress Shaden Salim radiates. A magnificent figure of resistance, of an assumed modernity, the tragic heroine revolts against the law of the tyrant. The play is performed in Arabic by the actors of the Palestinian National Theater.
The audacious troupe of East Jerusalem animates the text of Sophocles in his flesh, bringing it to a degree of accuracy and truth rarely equaled. The delicacy of the poetic staging of Adel Hakim makes vibrate incandescent speech emphasized by the Trio Joubran, three brothers musicians with mad lyricism. An inescapable spectacle that the public receives full force.
