Teresa Ralli will reprise her critically acclaimed role in the one-woman Antígona, from Peru's internationally acclaimed collective theater group Grupo Cultural Yuyachkani, to be presented at the Getty Villa November 14-16 as part of the FITLA International Latino Theatre Festival of Los Angeles.

Sophocles' timeless drama of the arrogance of power, presented in Spanish with supertitles in English, features Ralli as all the play's characters: Antigone, Ismene, Creon, Hermion, Tiresias, Haemon, and the messenger, using only a chair as a prop on an otherwise empty stage.

Ralli developed the play with acclaimed Peruvian poet José Watanabe through interviews with families of the "disappeared" in Peru. Watanabe's text is based both on Sophocles' original and on a vision of Peru.
