Starring Broadway and screen actress Nicole Ansari and internationally renowned Comédie-Française actor and dancer Shahrokh Moshkin Ghalam, I Am Antigone is a timely story of one woman's stand against the abuse of political power. Defying Creon's command by performing burial rites for her beloved brother Polynices, Oedipus's daughter Antigone is condemned to be buried alive. And there, impervious to time, she lives to this day.
