Theater for the New City’s Dream Up Festival 2017 presents the world premiere of I AM ANTIGONE, a contemporary adaptation of the Sophocles text by poet Saudamini Siegrist, and directed by Myriam Cyr, which begins performances September 8th. Starring Broadway and screen actress Nicole Ansari and internationally renowned Comedie Francaise 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. I AM ANTIGONE will play eight performances only: Friday, September 8 at 9:00 pm; Saturday, September 9 at 8:00 pm; Tuesday, September 12 at 6:30 pm; Wednesday, September 13 at 9:00 pm; Saturday, September 14 at 6:30 pm; Friday, September 15 at 6:30 pm and Saturday, September 16 at 2:00 and 8:00 pm, at Theatre for the New City (155 First Avenue).

Tickets are $20, and are available by phone at (212) 254-1109 and online at www.dreamupfestival.org.
