For Antigone in the Amazon, Milo Rau and his team travel 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. 

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.
