This weekend, indulge in the creative world of performing arts with ‘Antigone / Borderline’, a play by Japanese theatre company Shelf. Through a modern adaption of ancient Greek mythology, the play brings to life Antigone, a heartfelt tragedy by Sophocles.

With this modern remake, the traditional narrative that deals with civil disobedience, death, fidelity, and more is given a contemporary treatment by director Yasuhito Yano and his team.
