St Joan 2014
By Julia Pascal
One Black Jewish Londoner imagines herself back in time as Joan of Arc, trying to stop the Holocaust and slavery, while reliving being martyred at the stake by the male powers that be. Only a dead saint is a useful saint, and today she serves as the symbol for the French right-wing xenophobic “Front National”. But would she really “boot the foreigners out” this time?
3 women, raised fists, poetry, conflict, movement and metal…
It was one amazing ride at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014, and the following year, 2015, we continued the ride!
