In this Easter Special, interdisciplinary performer Jo Blake returns to In the Borderlands to talk about her upcoming show "The Witness" about the relationship and balance between Jesus and Mary Magdalene and how his story became History and her story became Heresy.
We are happy to welcome back Jo Blake from episode #3 to talk about her upcoming project The Witness, based on the Gospel of Mary – a 5th century text that casts the teachings of Christ in a different light. Join us for this easter deep dive into gnostic gospels and buried knowledge.
”Flowers become flesh becomes bird…”
The first guest on our show is Jo Blake, a performer working across the disciplines of storytelling, theatre and dance. She has written a PhD about her project of unearthing the mythological character Blodeuwedd (flower-face/owl) from the depths of the Mabinogion - a medieval Welsh text regarded as one of the oldest and most complete repositories of British Celtic Myth.
