MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Culture Shock Miami and the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center are collaborating to bring residents a fresh take on the Greek tragedy “Antigone”.

World-acclaimed flamenco dancer Soledad Barrio and her internationally sought company, Noche Flamenca, will retell the timeless play through flamenco dance and music.

The New York Times describes Barrio as an artist who “lands in a place every dancer dreams of inhabiting. She lives in the moment. It’s like watching the ocean as one wave crashes into the next.”

Martin Santangelo’s five-part adaptation of “Antigone”, retitled “Antingona” to represent the Spanish flair, will be performed on the main stage of South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center on Saturday, November 15, at 8:00 p.m.

The cast of 16 dancers and musicians will retell the tragic story of the daughter of a Greek nobleman and soldier who would rather die than dishonor her father. Barrio will play the leading lady, Antigona.

The second part of the program features individual works choreographed in the authentic flamenco tradition by Santangelo and members of the company.

Ticket prices range from $27.50 to $47.50 online at SMDCAC.org or through the SMDCAC box office by calling 786-573-5300.

However, exclusively through CultureShockMiami.com, 13-22 year olds and one accompanying guest can purchase tickets for just $5. Culture Shock Miami’s ticket offer ends on Friday, November 14, at midnight.
