about

'Passion' is the score for the theatre work of the same name, made by the legendary Sydney post-dramatic theatre group The Sydney Front, in 1993, presented at The Performance Space, Sydney. Like the medieval passion plays, the audience performed the entire work, the episodes each inspired by either biblical texts or liturgical rites.
