Human beings are defined by what they do and by the truth of what they say. These words and deeds shape the world. Antigone was written two and a half thousand years ago. It is the story of a young woman, in a time of war, who determined to act and speak in accordance with her conscience, looks authority in the face and sees a mask, devoid of humanity.

Today in 2005, also a time of war, the image of Antigone in the face of that pitiless mask endures. It is an image of our time.

This full day participatory TIE programme will bring to life the drama of Antigone.   Young people will be invited to explore and explain to themselves and each other, the nature of human society and the power of word and deed.

Diffinir y bod dynol trwy air a gweithred.  Y gweithredoedd ar geiriau yma syn ffurfior byd.  Ysgrifennwyd Antigone dros ddwy fil a hanner o flynyddoedd yn l.  Hanes merch ifanc yn ystod cyfnod rhyfel syn benderfynol o lefaru a gweithredu yn unol i chydwybod; syn herio awdurdod ac yn dod wyneb yn wyneb mwgwd anhrugarog.

Yn 2005 eto, mewn cyfnod o ryfel maer ddelwedd o Antigone yn wynebu y mwgwd didostur mor fyw ag erioed.

Bydd y diwrnod cyfranogol or rhaglen Antigone yn anadlu bywyd i wythiennau hanfod y ddrama. Rhoddir cyfle i bobl ifanc archwylio ac esbonio drostynt eu hunain ac ir naill ar llall, natur y gymdeithas ddynol a grym gweithred a gair.
