In today's crisis-laden world, man looks for support in his global vulnerability, in order to survive, which he can only find in the framework of the moral-ethical historicity of our past. The intentions of Sophocles' Antigone drama have been valid for 2000 years, their reinterpretation is a modern adaptation of the work - even in the context of a theater performance it can actually "help" in the tangle of interpretation of the complicated structure of our existence.
Plato and Aristotle contradicted each other in many ways, but both viewed the necessity of democracy in a pejorative way. They saw exactly that the public interest and the private sphere are difficult to reconcile. Antigone is not only a clash of tyranny and brotherly love, but also an emblematic problem of the requirement of community and individual interest. Man's destiny has no other option than the "harmonious arrangement" of this irresolvable contradiction is the unwarranted effort to do so. In this search for a way, one can become the "most wonderful creature" following Sophocles.
