and live Q&A with Jo

WE WILL BE POSTING SOME RECORDINGS FROM THIS EVENT SHORTLY
His story became History. Her story became Heresy.The sacred and profane collide in a new performance by interdisciplinary artist Jo Blake, inspired by the Gospel of Mary Magdalene. It reveals Mary Magdalene as a most formidable and courageous spiritual leader, confidante and companion of Christ, a visionary and witness, and radically gender-non-conforming woman of her time.
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.
After the 70-minute performance, there will be a short interval followed by a screening of Jo's 8 minute film about the Gospel, and then the opportunity to ask Jo questions about the making of these pieces, her engagement with the Gospel and person of Mary Magdalene, and developments for touring the performance again next year.
