Teatro IATI presenta una obra contemporánea donde la primera feminista revolucionaria confronta a George W. Bush * Una Heroína de la Mitología Griega en la Sociedad Actual Teatro IATI (Instituto Arte Teatral Internacional) da la bienvenida al 2009 con el estreno en Nueva York de El Corazón de Antígona, obra contemporánea de la tragedia de Sófocles, original del escritor Pati Domenech, del 5 al 8 de febrero en el 64 East 4th Street, East Village.

Las funciones son en español con supertítulos en inglés. El Corazón de Antígona se ha convertido en una de las producciones más internacionales salidas de España en los últimos años. Desde su estreno hace dos años, esta obra ha visitado más de 25 países en África, Europa, EE.UU. y América Latina, obteniendo numerosos reconocimientos. "Pero el reconocimiento más gratificante", afirma Pati Domenech, "es el logro de tener una audiencia diversa en todo el mundo llenando salas para ver esta producción, quedando en la mayoría de los casos, cientos de personas sin acceso". La tragedia griega original fue escrita 400 años A.C. y sigue siendo hoy una de las favoritas para cine, narrativa, coreografía, ópera y teatro. La fuerza en su texto no sólo ha sido preservada a través de los años, sino sigue siendo muy actual. El dramaturgo Bertolt Brecht, quien hizo su propia versión de esta tragedia, dijo: "Antígona es la primera feminista revolucionaria de la historia que enfrenta a un tirano".

A raíz de la actual invasión estadounidense de Irak, esta producción es fruto de la colaboración del grupo de teatro “Abrego Producciones” de España y la compañía chilena “La Tirana". El montaje no sólo mantiene la universalidad del mito, sino que lo sitúa en un espacio-tiempo contemporáneo, caracterizado por un mundo en conflicto lleno de contradicciones. A través de los siglos, Antígona ha sido un emblema de la defensa de los derechos humanos. Esta producción y puesta en escena nos presenta a este histórico personaje en una reflexión moderna sobre el neoimperialismo. La guerra se sitúa como telón de fondo, la injusticia que genera, la manipulación de la información a nivel global, y la explotación de otros países como una forma de neoimperialismo, basado en la intimidación de la sociedad, frente a la amenaza externa.

El personaje de Creonte adquiere una connotación moderna utilizando frases literales del propio presidente George W. Bush, Comandante en jefe de las tropas estadounidenses en Irak. El Corazón de Antígona, estelarizada por María Vidal, es co-dirigida por Jorge López y Pati Domenech, y cuenta con escenografía de Sara Huete, vestuario de Paula Roca, títeres y máscaras de Cristina Laso, y coreografía de Regina Navarro.
