Antigone in Ferguson was conceived in the wake of Michael Brown Jr.’s murder in 2014, through a collaboration between Theater of War Productions and community members from Ferguson, MO. Antigone in Ferguson fuses a dramatic reading by leading actors of Sophocles’ Antigone with live choral music performed by a choir of educators, activists, police officers, youth, and concerned citizens from Ferguson and New York City. The performance is the catalyst for panel and audience-driven discussions about racialized violence, structural oppression, misogyny, gender violence, and social justice. This event will have a focus on racialized police violence and health inequity in the Baltimore area, and is open to the public.
This event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Registration is required–please visit AIFBALTIMORE.EVENTBRITE.COM to register.
