Director, Writer, and Performer| Union Chapel
A meditative, sensory-based theatrical experience devised by four female performers.
On Good Friday, the story of the Passion is retold and reimagined through the eyes of a female Christ. An evening of performance, ritual and music exploring suffering and grief from a unique perspective, in the atmospheric Union Chapel.
The Passion of Christa is a piece of Sacred Theatre. It’s an inquiry into the possibility of Christ
representing aspects of the Feminine Divine – Christ as darkness, death, descent, chaos, bodily
sensation, emotion, vulnerability, grief, rage, despair. It’s an inquiry into the paradigm of order and
authority that wants to shut that down and ‘crucify it’.
We asked ourselves the question who is the suffering Christ? We asked ourselves who is Christa? We considered our own experiences, as women, growing up within a church tradition.
Our vision of Sacred Theatre is a coming together of artists through heart connection and a
commitment to deep intuition, with the intention of creating a space where ‘the Gods can descend’.
