Meet the Cast & Crew - Chantelle Goulevitch

Chantelle Goulevitch ig: @goulevitch tw: @cgoulevitch Ismene/Chorus/Co-Producer Why did you take on this role with this production? / What interests you about this specific production of Antigone? I didn't particularly want to re-tell the story of Antigone. It exhausts me to think that after thousands of years these themes can still be relevant.

Meet the Cast & Crew - Melody Erfani

Melody Erfani Producer/Director Why do you think this story needs to be told/today? 2, 456 years later after this story was first told, governing rulers and the people who follow them (or not) are extremely relevant, especially in our own current election year, but also in world politics. Two particular instances that serve as reminders of why this story needs to be told today are: Republican primary nominee Donald Trump calling for surveillance against mosques and being open to establishing a database for all Muslims that are living in the U.S. He maintains the war is against radical Islam, but said, "it's very hard to define.
