"Magdala, Stories from the Net and The Sea", is a performance piece combining dance, music and storytelling by two women; Xio Evans from Costa Rica and Marni Rice from New York City. They have interpreted the story of Mary Magdalene; a witness, an apostle, a messenger and a community leader who struggled to have her voice heard, as women still struggle in communities worldwide, to this day.
Xio Evans Marni Rice Experimental Dance-Theatre is a performance project with a mission to create original performance works dedicated to issues of social justice. Their collaborative work has been presented at Lehman College, Riverside Church, Judson Memorial Church, The Cell Theater, as well as street festivals and community gardens in NYC
