The essay focuses on the project Syrma Antigones by Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò, founders and leaders of a theatre group called Motus. Tracing the creative path of the project’s four performances ‒ Too Late!, Iovadovia, Let the Sunshine In, Alexis. A Modern Tragedy ‒ from Sofocles tragedy Antigone to modernity, the essay highlighs the connection between the Motus and the Living Theatre, particularly on Antigone’s historic model Judith Malina. In addiction, the essay outlines the core of Motus’ performing theatre: its connection with the audience and its way to structure the space. It also considers two of the key characteristics of Motus’ experience: its relationship with the socio-political context and its theatre as a civil commitment. Finally, based on this analysis, the author defines the Motus’ new way of ‘‘political theatre’’ that Daniela Nicolò herself calls ‘‘sociological theatre’’.
