"In this day the sun shall become black, [...] the moon shall become like blood [...] the stars of the heavens shall fall upon the earth like ripe figs, and the kings of the earth shall be afraid."
Jokanaan (from Salomé, Oscar Wilde)
EDIFICE and The Monastery bring you Transcendence, an immersive, sensorial experience unlike anything else.
Transcendence tells Oscar Wilde’s classic tragedy Salomé through a dark, sensual, voyeuristic lens. This unique production opens the doors of The Monastery- an ancient, sacred space in Rye, which boasts three storeys of carefully curated, lavish interiors designed by Alex Macarthur. Throughout the evening your senses will awaken with scented interiors, candlelit rooms, complimentary wine, aphrodisiac appetisers and an enchanting, original composition by Phillip O’Meara.
..so give yourself to us, as this night, on this full moon you are invited to the lavish masked banquet of King Herod to drink his wine and enjoy his sprawling home. Known for its lavish gatherings and lively court this will be a night to remember!
