• National Theatre Live: “Salomé”
by Yaël Farber
Wednesday, Nov. 1, 7 p.m.
Josephine Louis Theater
In an occupied desert nation, a radical from the wilderness is on a hunger strike, and a girl’s mysterious dance will change the course of the world. This charged retelling turns the infamous biblical tale on its head, placing the girl we call Salomé at the center of a revolution. Internationally-acclaimed theater director Yaël Farber (“Les Blancs”) draws on multiple accounts to create her urgent, hypnotic production.
Please note this production contains nudity, and the characters depict and make reference to sexual violence.
