The Witness

His story became History. Her story became Heresy.

The sacred and profane collide in a new performance inspired by the Gospel of Mary Magdalene. Three copies of the gospel have been found all of them with missing pages. As the only gospel written in the name of a woman, it reveals Mary Magdalene as a most formidable and courageous spiritual leader, confidante and companion of Christ.

Moving through humour, bold physicality and intricate storytelling; The Witness reveals how one woman’s 2000 year old testimony comes clattering into the life of a contemporary woman, initiating a reckoning and demanding that the missing pages be written anew.
