86529_AUT19 : Performative Spaces

In this studio, students will read and research Sophocles’ ANTIGONE and visit and document the site formerly known as THE WORLD BAR in King’s Cross.

Students will synthesise their research into the text and site to create an immersive set design for a contemporary theatrical production. Design proposals will respond to the unique history of the site, expressing parallels between characters of the ancient world of Thebes and the colourful landscape of Kings Cross from the later half of the 20th century.
