Pittsburgh-based writer/director Adil Mansoor revisits the Greek tragedy Antigone for his latest work, Amm(i)gone. Presented as part of a month-long residency at Kelly Strayhorn Theater, the work-in-progress show uses Sophocles’ ill-fated, mythological heroine — the product of the incestuous marriage between Oedipus and his mother, Jocasta — to create an original performance that serves as an apology to and from his mother. Using teachings from the Quran and audio conversations with his mother, Mansoor produces an exploration of queerness and love across faith. The event includes a post-show discussion with Mansoor.
