The Tower by Jesse Jones

In Person

‘The Tower’ is a new work by artist Jesse Jones, and the 3rd exhibition in the Magdalene Series at Rua Red, curated by Maolíosa Boyle.

Based on the writings of medieval female Christian mystics, ‘The Tower’ explores the women who were burned as heretics even before the first witch trials in the 17th century. For this work, Jones collaborates with Rua Red dancers in residence Junk Ensemble, and a cast that includes actors Olwen Fouéré, Naomi Moonveld-Nkosi, and a young choir of performers.

‘The Tower’ turns to the figure of the mystic and the heretic and asks: ‘Who came before the witches?’
