Salome is a new indie-pop music theatre adaptation of the mythology of Salome – the infamous princess of Judea who dances for the severed head of John the Baptist. Feeling trapped in a world who treats her as an object, the princess Salome decides enough is enough. She is going to reclaim her power and help her mother do the same. Salome encounters the mysterious, and handsome, prophet Jokanaan, who speaks of the coming of the new world and the sacrifices one must make to create it. Together, they enter into a dangerous dance that changed history. Salome is part theatre, part fashion show, part art installation and part pop concert.
