Antígona (2000)

Teresa Ralli Teresa Ralli Elsa Estremadoyro

Video documentation of the theater piece Antígona, directed by Miguel Rubio Zapata and masterfully performed by Teresa Ralli of the Grupo Cultural Yuyachkani (Peru) in the context of the first Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, held at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2000. This one-woman performance of José Watanabe's version of Sophocles' classic tragedy is a breathtakingly sad example of the devastation twenty years of civil violence in Peru caused; although it is the story of only one character, it speaks for the nearly 70,000 disappeared men, women and children of Peru.
