If you could have anything in the world, what would you ask for?
Salome is a new indie-pop theatrical piece centered around the mythological girl who, when given the choice of anything, asked for the severed head of John the Baptist. Meet Salome, a young princess trapped in a world where she is treated as an object. Torn between devotion to her mother and the new, mysterious voice of a prophet who calls for the coming of a new world, Salome is determined to claim autonomy over her own story and body. But she soon learns what sacrifices autonomy requires and finds herself drawn into a dangerous dance that will change the course of history. Part theatre, part fashion show, part art installation, and part pop concert, Salome is a young woman's journey to her unexpected heart's desire.
