The University of Wyoming Classics program, Relative Theatrics, and the University of Wyoming Art Museum present The Antigone Project: A Play in Five Parts as a virtual Read Rant Relate on Friday, 3 April 2020, starting at 7 PM MT, in conjunction with CLAS 2020 Classical Greek Civilization. Join us using the link on Facebook.com/Relative Theatrics or https://youtu.be/AsrO7I3OHZ8. . A discussion will follow the reading moderated by Dr. Laura De Lozier (UW Classics).
Conceived by Chiori Miyagawa and Sabrina Peck, The Antigone Project: a Play in Five Parts creates a “theatrical relay through time and space” of Antigone’s tale as five multi-racial women playwrights - Karen Hartman, Tanya Bartfield, Caridad Svich, Lynn Nottage, and Chiori Miyagawa - explore how individuals can respond to systemic oppression based on gender, class, and race.
This event is free and open to the public, although some material may not be suitable for all audiences.
The reading was programmed alongside the Pat Guthrie Teaching Gallery Exhibition for CLAS 2020 Classical Greek Civilization at the University of Wyoming Art Museum. This event is funded by grants and support from the Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research, Wyoming Humanities, the CAMWS Committee for the Promotion of Latin, the University of Wyoming Art Museum, and the University of Wyoming Department of Modern & Classical Languages.
