A conversation between Will Aitken and Anne Carson.

Aitken's new memoir explores Anne Carson's translation of the ancient Greek drama, Antigone, and the corresponding internationally touring stage performance starring Juliette Binoche and directed by famed stage director, Ivo van Hove. Along the way, Aitken explores the impact of Antigone on art and theatre, but also on his own psyche as he talks in detail to each of the three artists involved.

Hosted by Devyani Saltzman.
