El Misterio is an adaptation of a 700-year-old Spanish liturgical drama that depicts the dormition, assumption, and coronation of the Virgin Mary. A surreal evocation of modern spirituality, this performance is an investigation into how we commune, worship, and believe in the present day. Through music, text, and spectacle, it aims to uncover the power of shared ceremony and to juxtapose it with modern rites and habits of human connectivity and disjunction in a technologically mediated world.
