This event occurred in the past. It is no longer possible to book tickets.
It is still hard to measure the impact made by Jo Clifford’s play “The Gospel According to Jesus Queen Of Heaven” in Brazil but many researchers and academics are already describing it as a work that has changed the history of Brazilian theatre. The company has resisted attempts at censorship via court orders, slanders, spreading fake news, threats of physical violence, and other boycotting strategies. To go and see the play has become a political act. Things will never be the same again - for Natalia, Renata Carvalho who performs as Queen Jesus - nor for Brazil itself.
Participants are free to sit and listen or move around and take part more actively.
Part of the mini-season celebrating the 10th anniversary of The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven. We aim to create a space that centres trans, gender non-conforming and non-binary voices and experiences so please consider this when taking up a space on this workshop.
