Spectral Evidence stages the trial of four women. The geometrical lines of the stage set, along with the percussive music of John Cage, create a cold and frightening universe. Until an emotion emerges between a man and a woman. An encounter that will forbid neither the fire of the stake nor the dream of a resurrection.
