These returns, these multiple levels of anastrophe , enable the plays to respond to political contexts their authors knew nothing about. As an Antigone, she takes us back to Sophocles and forces us to consider his political context. As an actress, she forces us to confront the doomed repetitions of her character: Antigone always dies. And as a messenger, she draws our attention to what we could not see and brings to life the disappeared bodies of the lost. We must choose to watch Antigone meet an end that she has met for millennia, and we must then decide what her death means for us now.

From Ancient Greek Drama to Argentina's ‘Dirty War’; Antígona Furiosa: On Bodies and the State
These returns, these multiple levels of anastrophe , enable the plays to respond to political contexts their authors knew nothing about. As an Antigone, she takes us back to Sophocles and forces us to consider his political context. As an actress, she forces us to confront the doomed repetitions of her character: Antigone always dies. And as a messenger, she draws our attention to what we could not see and brings to life the disappeared bodies of the lost.
Gambaro's writing has been influenced by the politics of Argentina , which has seen three military takeovers, two rigged elections, several factions of urban guerrillas, and the state-run Dirty War from She removes the rope around her neck and starts to sing the same song Ophelia sings in Shakespeare 's Hamlet , after her character is driven insane by her lover. Coryphaeus bursts into laughter, then pretends with great exaggeration that he is dying from its "poison," with Antinous quickly joining in. She throws herself on top of him, protecting or attempting to revive him, and attempts to give him proper burial. Antinous remarks how she wasn't able to bury him, as the earth was too hard, and that is how the guards caught her.
