For Antigone in the Amazon, Milo Rau and his team traveled to the Brazilian state of Pará, where the forests burn due to the expanding soy monocultures and where nature gets devoured by capitalism. On an occupied piece of land, in collaboration with MST (Movimento dos Trabalhadores Sem Terra), the world’s largest landless workers’ movement, they create an allegorical play about the violent devastations and displacements caused by the modern state, which places private property above the traditional right to land. 

In 2020 the creation process was interrupted due to the corona pandemic: the team had to return from Brazil in the midst of rehearsals. In the spring of 2023 it will travel back and finish the production to finally present the premiere of Antigone in the Amazon  in the season of 22-23.

After the productions Orestes in Mosul  in the former capital of the Islamic State and the Jesus film The New Gospel  in the southern Italian refugee camps, Milo Rau and his team travel to the Amazon in Brazil to conclude their Trilogy of Ancient Myths.

The intellectual renewal will not come from the gated communities where the authoritarian neoliberalism emerged. The philosophy of the coming era will come from the forests, from the favelas and the banlieues, from occupied houses and monocultures.
