the cast and stage directions:
thebes and oedipus (both at the same time):
Reading greek tragedy through marx e.g. as the allegory of capitalist s collapse under the weight of its own contradictions.
The forsaken u.s. military radar i. e. the pinnacle of overproduction, hedonism and imperialism is the blinf oedipus And the buerocratic strong hold of creon
creon himself: image (or visibility, perceptibility, and..the ‘human animal’ ?)
polynices: sound (and how do the unburried dead sound? Maybe, various ‘ internationals’ slowed down to the point where its just an indesernible, inhuman sound playing at the same time out of sync)
ismene: time (her indecisiveness makes the film go on)
chorus: nothing (absent) no morality
antigone: montage (only one cut , every image is contained within the other before antigones act)
and i want another character to appear after the cut
the raven from passolini’s ‘the hawks and the saprrows’ to walk inside of the derelict radar interiors
To be carried around and used at pickets.
