Resurrexit The Mimesis Theatre Project
About This Show
In a collision of Gregorian Chant, American Martial Arts and Oscar Wilde’s The Ballad of Reading Gaol, The Mimesis Theatre Project’s Resurrexit confronts the power of faith in the face of personal strife. A devised Musical Theatre company, The Mimesis Theatre Project creates music, dance and text collaborations that strive to find the intersectionality between artists and forms throughout time. Created for lost-souls and firm believers alike, Resurrexit is sure to resonate with both the personal and celestial.
