Vlam 2 explores the same subject matter as Vlam 1 – the millennium.
It is about revelation and resurrection; death and rebirth. For most people the millennium is just an excuse for a party; others seek deeper more spiritual meanings from it. Some will wake having witnessed a revelation; others will wake with the mother of all hangovers.
“In an instant will come thunder and earthquake and great noise, with windstorm and tempest and flames of a devouring fire… and it shall be as a dream, a vision of the night.” (Isaiah 29:5-8)
“The Jazzart/Magnet Theatre alliance has been responsible for some of the best movement theatre this country has seen,… and this show is clearly from that stable. What sets these collaborations apart is the obvious hand of the director (Magnet Theatre’s Mark Fleishman assisted by Jennie Reznek).”
