The Italian performance group Motus succeeded in mesmerising audiences at last year’s Mladi levi festival with their captivating performance Too Late! of Brecht’s Antigone. As the embodiment of political theatre par excellence, Motus dauntlessly produces performances that poke you in the eye, allowing new and closer perspectives, while the virtuosic strength of the protagonists awakens and sobers up the audience. Borders between countries, historical events, art and social engagement are rendered null and void for Motus. Has there ever been a more appropriate time to stage Greek tragedies? There, on the streets of Greece, amongst protesters and graffiti, which seem more palpably real than the discredited media – that’s where you’ll find Motus. Have the stories of Greek heroes and their resistance against kings and authorities ever felt more relevant than in present-day society, stripped of all illusions as to what the future may hold?
