Antigone Teachers’ Resource Pack

February 8, 2013

This password protected webpage (Password: George2013) houses the resources created by classicists to introduce performing arts students on a module that takes a Greek tragedy from the page to the modern stage for performance in Leeds in May 2013. It will be useful to students or teachers of any subject at any level who are interested in Sophocles’ Antigone as a performance that originated in C5th BC Athens.

The resources consist of audio-recorded presentations, with accompanying PowerPoint slides and handouts where applicable, which provide some specific bibliography for follow-up, if desired. Each set of resources gathered under a title is accompanied by a brief description of the content and the use to which it can be put. A few “Other Resources” are also provided in response to requests so far. A full description of the resources available can be downloaded: Antigone Teachers Resource Pack (pdf).

Talks featured:

  • Antigone in Drama and Myth: titles, texts and tales”
  • “Athenian Weddings and Funerals”
  • Antigone in historical context”
  • “Sophocles’ Antigone and Cultural Values”
  • “Anouilh’s Antigone
  • “Lost in Translation”
  • “Staging Sophocles’ Antigone in the Ancient Theatre”

Contact email addresses are provided, if you have any further queries.
