In co-production with Théâtre Gilles-Vigneault (Saint-Jérôme, Quebec).

The city of Thebes is the scene of this terrible story that we are going to tell you. It is a story that begins in the very heart of the family, where the tensions are the highest, the most devastating. Because everyone knows everyone else so well, each knows exactly what will cause the other the most pain, what will be the mortal injury.

This is the story of Antigone and Creon, the story of Oedipus, his parents and his children, the story of Ismene and Haemon. These people come from a distant country and time: Greece, more than two thousand years ago. But their names have endured through the ages, travelled around the world, and now they are before you, full of love and hate, life and death.

Adopting a sense of astonishment before these legendary figures who made their way into history, Suzanne Lebeau takes us back to fundamental questions that underlie the workings of Western societies. With this new text, she offers a foray into the world of philosophy, leading us to a disarming fact: there are no definitive answers to the great questions of life.

The show, rooted in uncompromising modernity, reveals the timeless nature of the tragedy. It allows spectators to seize upon their critical senses to probe the meaning of life.
