Joan raises her hand to the sky, it bursts into flames. Everywhere there are women burning. White ash falls.
Joan is a teenage girl. A virgin soldier who will convince an army of men that she hears the voice of the divine. Her body will become the site of a nation’s anxieties and hopes. She will burn.
Realised in black and white, JOAN pays homage to the art of live oration and silent film.
Following the immersive portrayal of Oscar Wilde’s Dorian Gray in Room of Regret (2013), Theatre Works is delighted to premiere The Rabble’s poetic exploration of France’s medieval heroine, Joan of Arc.
