"Janie Gibson channels the spirit of Joan of Arc in this breathtaking performance that addresses us, involves us – and makes us complicit in the outcomes...But we’re not just an audience, we’re part of this trial, this ritual..."
Mark Wicket, Stage Whispers
Voices Of Joan is a moving and irreverent solo performance unravelling the history of misogyny through a radical retelling of the story of Joan of Arc.
Join us for an interactive creative workshop designed to unlock your inner power as a tool for outer change. Alongside our performance season of Voices Of Joan, we offer you this playful and illuminating workshop co-created with local leaders championing Joan’s legacy of not being defined by how others define you.
