Erotic exploration of love, death, sacrifice and betrayal. Herod's step daughter Salome, frustrated in her desire for the imprisoned John the Baptist, performs for Herod one of the most famous and erotic dances of all time and then demands as her reward the head of the holy man. But in doing so she only influences her own terrible downfall.
Author Oscar Wilde

Production details

Theatre Libre will approach the text from a feminist angle, exploring the result of the objectification of women. How does Salome evolve under the constant scrutiny of the male gaze? Are men as interested in the idea of female beauty as they are with the concept of ownership? What happens when Salome harnesses her sexuality for empowerment?
