Low Fat Art Fest is pleased to present you “Antigone / Border-line”, a quality play by Japanese Theatre Company shelf. Rendered through the simplicity of Japanese post-drama style, shelf brought to life a classical Greek tale Antigone, interpreted through the lens of human chaos of the modern time.

“Theatre Company shelf” is a group of actor and actress from Tokyo led by Yasuhito Yano, a director who in the past decade have been tirelessly forged the new path to the sensitivity of literature. Their works include the recent adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s classic “Ghost”, “Hanjo / Yoroboshi” which inspired by Japan’s important writer Yukio Mishima and many more. shelf stands for bookshelf; the group stays truthful to their ambition to stay truthful to the details in the original script and the subtext that lies underneath, whether they are manuscripts, important speeches or even a constitution. The stillness of language is interwoven, respectfully rendered in the simplicity of Japanese aesthetics and compelling acting. 

“Antigone / Border-line” is a proud return to Low Fat Art Fest stage for the second time after “deprived” in 2015. This year the company collaborated with talented Thai actress Sumonta Suanponrat, with designer Techit Jiropaskosol, contributing on production design. 

Antigone is an ancient Greek tale of a Thebes princess standing against the oppressive power, insisting that her beloved brother’s body to be cremated with his well-deserved honor. Although the company pay vigorous attention to various versions of translated scripts to the point that the team travelled to research Thailand on Matanee Rattanin’s version of Antigone performed in 1975 and historical context surrounding it, much of the well-known storyline is blurred and the discourse between reasoning and emotion is heighten, suggestively.

The play is performed in Japanese and Thai with Thai and Japanese subtitles.
