Approaching a piece of world literature.
Sophocles’ ANTIGONE makes audiences from all cultures reflect about human nature and our place in society. In Vietnam, ANTIGONE is reminiscent of the GIRL KIEU ‒ and yet quite different.

The girl Kieu

In appreciation of various translations and in reverence for the poet Nguyen Du, the Goethe-Institut focuses its attention on this literary work and raises the question of its contemporary interpretation and - closely related to it - the question of today’s role and image of women in Vietnam.
