Revelations 12:19, December 2012
A collage performance event for the End of Days.
Audience members rang in the prophesied apocalypse with a collage-based performance. Interviews, letters and passages exposed the mixed messages of religion and how compassion can be found within so much hate. Against the backdrop of the end of days and the second coming of Christ, five archetypal characters and a chorus of angels presented a forum for a world torn apart by confusion.
Inspirations included: Westboro Baptist Church preachings, interviews with Pat Robertson, The Crucible by Arthur Miller, Medieval Morality Tales, Judie Brown from the American Life League, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and the Poems of Jesus Christ.
