Description

“His story became History. Her story became Heresy.”

The sacred and profane collide in a new performance inspired by the ‘Gospel of Mary Magdalene’, the only gospel written in the name of a woman, it revealed Mary Magdalene as a most formidable and courageous spiritual leader, confidante, and companion of Christ – but also apocryphal.

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 like no other.
