Salome's Dance, written and directed by Deborah Dennison
Who exactly was Salome? We've read the stories, heard the opera, seen the gory paintings, but was this young woman really a homicidal temptress? Actually, the historians of her time report nothing of her dance or her demand for the head of John the Baptist. She lived through an extraordinary time in the first century and in a place where earth changing events were happening. Her mother, Herodias and her step father, Herod Antipas, where condemned by the Temple priests for violating Mosaic Law, hated by their own people as lackies of the Roman Empire, and mistrusted by Roman emperors Tiberius and Caligula. As they sat in their little palace in the Galilee, monumental events of history and religion swept past them - subject for a new play.....
which will have its debut in New Mexico in 2015 before going to London later in the year.
