Antigone At The Barbican :- Watch Antigone At The Barbican on Youtube on Fire, Based on a stage production that played the Edinburgh Festival and London’s Barbican Theatre (and filmed at the Barbican), Ivo van Hove’s revival of ANTIGONE in a new translation by Anne Carson offered a chilling comment on despotism and its consequences.Played on a largely bare two-leveled set, with a massive illuminated circle at the back of the stage, van Hove concentrated on Kreon’s (Patrick O’Kane’s) willful rule, as he condemned Antigone (Juliette Binoche) to death for daring to want to bury her brother – whom Kreon had previously declared a traitor. Despite numerous attempts to change his view, notably from his son, Kreon remained firm and by doing so precipitated a cycle of destruction extending far beyond the limits of his mortal rule.
