Prophecy, vision, or manifesto of insurrection? The Apocalypse has been exciting imaginations since the first century CE, summoning utopias, dystopias, and revolutionary movements. It is divine prophecy? Escatological preaching? A message of patience, belief, and hope in a better future? A call to insurrection? What’s certain is that this ominous phantasmagoria is a world-changing text.
A director of the new generation, with an idiosyncratic visual sensibility, Thanos Papakonstantinou pays close attention to the Apocalypse of John, takes inspiration for a contemporary ritual, and notes: “The myth of the Apocalypse is a kind of parable for the constant transformations of the human faith in a better world to come.”
From 3-20 October, John’s vision fills the Main Stage of Onassis Stegi. A group of remarkable performers and musicians transfer us to an on-stage allegory of the Second Coming, the four hoursemen, the seven seals, the Lamb of God, 666. Who is deserving of eternal life?
