    Alexis. A Greek Tragedy. Theatre Junction GRAND, 608 1 St. SW. Wednesday, February 19, 2014. Runs until Ends: February 22, 2014 Price:$39-$44

    “Where are the parents? Where are the artists? Why don’t they step outside? We aren’t terrorists, we aren’t the usual hooded, faceless ones…We’re your kids.”

    – From a letter sent to the press by Alexis’ friends

    Motus was founded in 1991 by Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò, who have always sculpted their projects like litmus paper, translating the contradictions of the culture and making them active material for reflection and provocation. Alexis is the company’s fourth production to contemplate the moral and political issues of Antigone, Sophocles’ eternal tragedy of resistance against power. Deeply inspired by Bertold Brecht’s version of Antigone, Motus’ work causes the past and the present to confront each other in a primal, physical performance as old as the theatre itself. Alexis. A Greek Tragedy was named Best Foreign Performance for the season 2011-12 by the Association of Theatre Critics of Quebec. For tickets, click Alexis
