A fortress called Machaerus, sandy cliffs perched high above the Sea of Death. A holy man from the wilderness, demanding freedom for his people, locked deep beneath the ground. A nameless woman, written into history, by others, known to us as Salomé, whose mysterious act changed the course of history.
Internationally acclaimed adaptor/director Yaël Farber reworks Oscar Wilde's play with ancient Arabic and Hebraic texts. The result is an urgently relevant exploration of the woman's voice in history, oppressed people's power over their own bodies, and the explosive connections between religious and political uprising.
