2.500 years ago, Sophocles the Athenian introduces the conflict of a young princess named Antigone who opposes the State’s power in order to bury her dead brother. At that moment, the moment of Democracy’s birth, a question is born that is still unanswered today.

Is human law Justice?

Alpha is a broadly collaborative, solely crowd funded feature film and live cinematic performance, inspired by our actual present and by this exact same question posed 2.500 years ago.

Alpha

A TRANSMEDIA CINEMATIC PERFORMANCE

THE FIRST EXCLUSIVELY CROWD-FUNDED ART PROJECT IN GREECE

Slug Magazine : Stunning! | ★★★★★ |

PopMatters : A visionary work of film.

Smells Like Screen Spirit : Mysteriously oblique, viscerally poetic. | ★★★★ |

TwitchFilm : Beguiling and mesmerizing.

Taste Of Cinema : The author speaks in excellent B&W images and layered soundscapes.

El Antepenúltimo Mohicano : Un tipo de cine alejado de fórmulas y estereotipos que lanza una mirada plena de fuerza al pasado transformándolo en poesía de nuestro presente. | ★★★★ |

Popaganda : Awe-inspiring to say the least.

Artmag : The Transmedia Cinematic Performance “Alpha”, is an impressive attempt in fusing performing arts and it hugely impressed and troubled its audience.

In the feature film, a woman is forced to sit under a rotting corpse in the middle of a burnt forest, until the authorities decide that she has been punished enough.

In the live performance, the performer plunges into her dark subconscious on-stage, while the feature film inundates the entire stage, forcing two worlds to unfold in unison before the eyes of the audience.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Since its inception, Ancient Drama has had a strong community, collective and political character. By bringing together a group of more than 40 young artists to creatively collaborate with BAKIS’ main team, we have chosen the route of crowd-funding for the project’s realisation.

Alpha is a completely independent, solely crowd-funded project that has become a reality with the active participation and support of 607 people from all over the world that have participated financially or otherwise.
