Choreographer Lionel Popkin’s new evening-length choreo-play, The Oedipus/Antigone Project, is inspired by the gap between two of Sophocles’ best known plays, Oedipus Rex and Oedipus at Colonus. The multi-media performance follows two outcasts, Oedipus and Antigone, traveling between lands and between plays, invoking topographical maps, a personal exploration of immigrant histories, and a flexible and at times farcical narrative, to question contemporary notions of displacement, exile and homeland.
