The Indianapolis Museum of Art is offering us a confounding chance to expand our theater vocabularies. Friday, Sept. 18 at 6:30 p.m., you can assemble at the IMA's Efroymson Entrance Pavilion, pay $15 ($10 if you're an IMA member) and see one of the city's most adventurous theater groups, NoExit, perform a site-specific production of the Greek tragedy Antigone at the museum's Lilly House. The production combines masks and physical theater with a Victorian Gothic accent.
What's confounding is that at 7 p.m. the same night you can also see Shozo Sato in the Tobias Theater. Sato is a master of Kabuki style theater who has translated a number of Western classical pieces, like Medea and Macbeth into the Kabuki form. Tickets for this event are $9 for the general public ($5 for IMA members).
But here's the beauty part: You can have your theater cake and eat it too because NoExit's Antigone continues Sept. 19, 20, 24 and 25.
