Sophocles' Antigone as an icon of civil disobedience immerses the audience in her multifaceted story: Audience* members become part of an 'augmented reality experience' in which the relationship between individual and community is constantly renegotiated. Based on the performance experience, the music theater collective AGORA talks to the audience about mechanisms of mobilizing and influencing masses. Where does responsibility of the individual begin, where does the action of the individual flow into society?
