”The Confession of Isobel Gowdie”
Choreography: Royston Maldoom
Music: James MacMillan CBE
Set to Scottish composer James MacMillan’s dynamic score ‘’The Confession of Isobel Gowdie’’, is dedicated to the memory of the last woman to stand trial for witchcraft in Scotland in 1662. Royston’s choreography is a fantasy, honouring the many women who have been and are persecuted for being perceived as a threat to the religious and political establishment worldwide.
This work was first created by Royston for Tumbuka Dance Company, Zimbabwe, and recreated on Aura Dance Theatre, Lithuania.
