In December 2008 in Athens, the protestor Alexandros Grigoroupoulos, a mere 15 years old, was shot and killed by a police officer. His death triggered battles in the streets that lasted for days.


At the same time, Motus, the theater group from Rimini, was working on the antique tragedy of Antigone. According to a law by Creon, the king of Thebes, as a traitor to his country her brother Polynices is not allowed to be buried. But Antigone, bound only by her conscience, ignores the ban and is sentenced to death herself in the end.


- ...and he told us that in his view art isn’t enough ... isn’t enough … isn’t enough … you have to do more …

- …And us, what shall we do … shall we go back on stage…?  It’s the only thing I can do now.


Over the course of the rehearsal process Motus, led by the phenomenal Silvia Calderoni as Antigone, traveled to Greece, visited the locations of the protests, and talked to the participants. And thus a multi-layered evening was developed that poses the question about the possibility of revolt, the possibility of resistance in today's society – and the question about the role theater could play here. A challenging intellectual exercise without any rash solutions.

Motus was set up in Rimini in 1991 by Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Francesconi Nicolò. Both studied in Urbino where they met at the university theatre group Atarassia and E.A.S.T. (European Associations of Students of Theatre). After graduation (respectively in History of Economics and Sociology) they moved to Rimini where they had the idea of forming an independent group which was initially called Opere dell'ingegno.
