ANTI/GON is a rebel, a fourteen year old girl fighting against injustice of both state and family. Her name is a tag, a mark to change the shape of her world.

ANTI/GON is highly stylized punk rock physical theatre with an electric soundtrack. Set in the town of Gori, Georgia surrounded by Russian troops – an occupied territory. The remnants of the empty forum ravaged by war remains, as the place of power continues to dominate the private family world. Watching a Greek myth unfold, knowing all the while about whom we are indirectly talking. There will be no escape.
