Out There: Teatro El Público

Every Thu., Fri., and Sat. from Jan. 4-6
8 p.m.

Things are about to get weird at the Walker Art Center, as Out There returns for a series of experimental performance-art pieces by troupes from around the world. The festival kicks off with Teatro El Público. The Havana-based company will be revisiting Sophocles’ Antigone, an ancient Greek tale of a woman who fights against tyranny in order to give her disgraced brother an honorable burial. Teatro El Público will bring the piece into the present through graphic newsreel footage, nods to counterculture, and heightened fashion statements.
