From the creators of The Other Mozart comes a new music-theater piece about the web of clashing myths, beliefs, symbols, and decrees surrounding the life of Mary Magdalene.

Playwright/performer Sylvia Milo and composer/percussionist Nathan Davis will give the World Premiere of their latest collaboration, I am the utterance of my name: Divining Mary Magdalene, which was created partially while in residence at Live Arts at the Morris Museum.

Equal parts theater, experimental music performance, and ritual, the artists draw on a multitude of texts and sources—biblical, Gnostic, heretical, medieval, and modern— to create a drama that unfolds in seven apparitions of Mary Magdalene, portrayed by Milo. Davis plays instruments both ancient and modern—hammered dulcimer, harmonium, and hand drums—interweaving live sound design with field recordings from sites significant to the mythology.
