Monologue by Lot Vekemans

"Me. Forgotten. Not spurned. Plain and simple... forgotten."

"Sister of" is a monologue based on the mythological figure of Ismene, sister of Antigone, daughter of Oedipus.

Sabine Lorenz tells the story of a woman who has always lived in the shadow of her heroic and world-famous sister Antigone. A woman who believes she has no right to exist because she has never done anything great or memorable, who is ashamed of who she is.

Ismene, who was denied the right to fame as well as the right to mourn her family. Her tears, her anger, her helplessness count for nothing in the face of the overwhelming tragedy of her family.

For 3000 years she lived in the realm of shadows: forgotten by life, forgotten by death.


Now she breaks her silence and starts talking, somewhere where time no longer counts.
