the hierophants is an ensemble-created abstraction of the relationship between religious & sexual persecution, BDSM, & ecstatic experience; it is loosely based on the story of The Convulsionnaires of Saint-  Médard.

the ensemble developed an original codified gestural language, using the Delsarte System and the Natya Shastra as points of origin.
