Join the Department of Spanish and Portuguese in its commitment to sharing Latin American history and culture through the performing arts.

Join the UW-Madison Department of Spanish and Portuguese this spring in its commitment to sharing Latin American history and culture through the performing artsPerla de la Rosa'sAntígona; las voces que incendian el desierto (2004) [Antigone; The Voices that Burn in the Desert] is an adaptation of Sophocles’ Antigone that highlights the serial murders of women in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. With a play where Tebas is Ciudad Juárez and Polinice is a disappeared woman, de la Rosa's Antigone engages the original Greek classic ultimately transforming it into a powerful contemporary story that subverts time, space and gender. In the end, in a seemingly Brechtian move, de la Rosa's Antigone denies the spectator the possibility of cathartic redemption, demanding, instead, that we become critical and active agents in the fight against femicide.

(Please note that both performances will be in Spanish BUT with English supertitles)
