Antigone review from greekpress
"At the beginning, in the background of the stage was projected a video loop of a washing machine. I was worried. I have been burned by 'innovative' performances in the past ...All concerns faded away from the first minutes after the third bell. All impeccable. For an hour and a half we watched the perfect interpretation of Antigone... even though it was in English.
Wonderful the three main actors. The Nigerian Lolu Ajayii showed that black actors can play more than Othello. Juggling between psychotic dictator, tragic father and fragile son, Lolu Ajayi gave a new perspective on one of the most interesting characters of ancient drama.
In the role of Ismini, the French Amélie Onzon, the frightened teenager who can not change the mind of her sister when she decides to break the human laws can not infringe those of the gods, but in the end she emulates heroism.
And top of all, Antigone, the beautiful Caroline Bech who stole the show with ease. Riveting of each syllable, each expression of her face and every movement of her perfect body.It was the third time I saw Antigone in the theater and I dare say it was by far the best. Even though it was in English. And Antigone became "Antaigkoni" and Polinikis "Polynaikis".
