In the Old Testament, Sampson, son of Israel, lives under the heel of the Philistines. A nazir who has made a vow to God to free his people, he cannot cut his hair without losing his extraordinary physical strength. The Samson of South African stage director Brett Bailey explodes this myth and its Judeo-Christian interpretations. His Samson is a contemporary hero, a rebel filled with rage at a world in which capitalism and neo-colonialism continue to kill, oppress and humiliate. Intended as an oratorio set to hypnotic music, masterfully performed by dancer and choreographer Elvis Sibeko, Samson warns of the world’s impending fall as it teeters on the brink of bankruptcy.
