What would Jesus preach in the 21st century? Who would his disciples be? And how would today’s bearers of secular and spiritual power respond to the return and provocations of this most influential prophet and social revolutionary in human history?
With THE NEW GOSPEL, dramaturg Milo Rau and his team return to the origins of the gospel and stage it as the passion play of a whole civilisation. With a cast of refugees and unemployed agricultural workers, engaging the community and featuring Yvan Sagnet as new Jesus, Milo Rau devises a theatrical performance and documentary film travelling from Matera to Palermo.
