Drink itOne of the Bible’s most famous harlots complexifies and comes to life through a new staging of the classic text, “Salomé” by Oscar Wilde. Developed into two operas, a film, and multiple other iterations, Wilde’s “Salomé” shocked audiences with its bare portrayal of the titular character’s feminine wiles, body, and inner life as she is forced to dance for King Herod. In this revamped modern adaptation, author/director Robert Eric Shoemaker joins choreographer/director Shelley DeHosse in a night of debauchery, sin, poetry, introspection, and redemption. Through burlesque and dance techniques, innovative staging and tech design, as well as a text designed to challenge the original by Oscar Wilde, “Wilde’s Salomé” will explore themes of feminism and empowerment, homosexuality, desire, and deadly passion.
