In Antigone, violence is explained as inadequacy. The war against Argos is the result of mismanagement in Thebes. The robbed ones are obliged to become robbers themselves. The undertaking is beyond their strength. Instead of holding their strength together, violence breaks it down. Basic human elements explode when they are suppressed too much. This throws everything apart and towards destruction.
(Danièle Huillet, Jean-Marie Straub)
