The Siena College Creative Arts Department and Stage III theatre club presented "Anti Gone Today," a new spin on the Greek classic "Antigone", in performances this November.
Samantha Burke served as a Costume Shop Student. Burke, a resident of Canton, is a Sophomore Science major at Siena.
Directed by Professor of Creative Arts Mahmood Karimi-Hakak, MFA, SED, the show infused today's political landscape into the Sophocles tragedy. Tapes of speeches by President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney were integrated into the performance to add references that could be understood by today's audience.
