(UK, 2017) Biblical story adapted by director Yaël Farber. Cast: Isabella Nefar, Theo TJ Lowe, Lubana al Quntar, Lloyd Hutchinson, Paul Chahidi.

The story has been told before, but never like this. An occupied desert nation. A radical from the wilderness on a hunger strike. A girl whose mysterious dance has the power to change the course of the world. South African director Yaël Farber and National Theater Live’s radical retelling of the classic tale transforms the biblical Salomé from a vengeful siren to a strong woman at the center of a revolution. The internationally acclaimed Yaël Farber (The Crucible) draws on multiple accounts to create her urgent, hypnotic new production – which can be seen live on the Cinestudio screen! “There are multitudes of women who have contributed to revolutions whose stories are written out; I’m interested in raising that spectre.” – Yaël Farber.
