The Magdalene Mysteries

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Vocal Motions Elastic Theatre embarks on an epic journey across the different depictions of Mary Magdalene through the ages. A cross-cultural cast of actors, dancers and singers tells the stories of this character through vocal music, contemporary dance and a devised text, based on original historical documents.

Traditionally known as the silent repentant sinner of the gospels, the figure of Mary Magdalene has recently inspired popular fascination. Conspiracy theories suggest new, increasingly controversial ideas about this character - not silent, not simply repentant, but a bold and charismatic leader in her own right.
