Performance addressing a contemporary tragedy through the story of Antigone. The project uses the structure of a Sophoclean chorus to communicate a eulogy for hundreds of unidentified migrants that were buried in mass graves at the Sacred Heart Cemetery in Texas. This performance will modernize a classic tragedy by incorporating current social justice issues that are relevant to our communities. The humanities are embedded in the story of Antigone and Powell’s interpretation of this tragedy as a vehicle to bring awareness to the life and death of those buried at Sacred Heart is an innovative approach to understand and record the world in which we live.
