The saintly demeanour, silent support, unwavering loyalty, implicit acceptance and quiet intellect of a woman have often been misconstrued as signs of weakness.
Joan of Arc, the revered French saint and Sita, a respected symbol of purity in India and Indonesia; are two women who ironically faced betrayal by men in power despite proving their allegiance.
The production When the flames blaze the caged body, I surrender my soul, I am ... delves in to the emotions and pain that these two women experience from this unexpected test of fire.
Has the fire truly ceased? Are they trapped in the flames? Can it destroy their spirits or has it just ignited their souls?
