Sacred Voices from The West is a devised theatre piece of handpicked poems about the divine reflections of Saints, martyrs and modern poets. St. Francis' loving observations of nature through the eyes of Catholicism; ecstatic love poems of St. Thomas Aquinas, Musical poetry of St. Catherine of Siena, Meister Eckhart’s freeing humour of divine reach; St. Teresa of Avila’s sensual verse; and the mystical, healing words of St. John of the Cross to the painful trial of Joan of the Arc—these along with contemporary spiritual works by Maya Angelou, Karen Boye, Wallace Stevens, Alicia Ostriker, Julius Lester.
The play is an attempt to create profound and playful renditions of Western spiritual poems and paintings of artists like Caravaggio, Rubens, and Michelangelo through this theatrical piece for the modern audience.
A spiritual treasure to cherish.
