The story has been told before, but never like this.

An occupied desert nation. A radical from the wilderness on hunger strike. A girl whose mysterious dance will change the course of the world.

This charged retelling turns the infamous biblical tale on its head, placing the girl we call Salomé at the centre of a revolution.

Internationally acclaimed theatre director Yaël Farber (Les Blancs) draws on multiple accounts to create her urgent, hypnotic production on the stage of the National Theatre.

GreenTech and BackBone Present “Now is the Time”

Backbone Campaign presents a documentary and community discussion about Single Payer Health Care on Tuesday, August 8th, 6 pm at the Theatre.  “Now Is the Time: Healthcare for Everybody” delves into the problems of US healthcare, what single payer health care is, and how it will save us money.  A panel discussion will follow, featuring Islanders involved with public health.

The US pays nearly twice as much for healthcare as any other industrialized nation, yet it still does not provide care for all of its citizens. While the AFA has helped some, many of us are feeling the pinch of rising costs and narrowing networks. Polls show that 58% of Americans favor a national publicly funded healthcare program. The post-film discussion will help us understand what we can do to catalyze healthcare for everybody. The screening is part of Meaning Movies of Vashon and is made possible thanks to generous support from Island GreenTech and Vashon Theatre.
Admission is by donation to the Backbone Campaign, a 501c3 not for profit organization.
