The work could be viewed either as pure theatre or as pure dance but it is more thrilling to enjoy it as the new direction in physical theatre it undoubtedly is. The company cite film as a medium that influences their work and they aim to produce a show where many different media are incorporated to make one creative piece. This always starts with the concept.
The biblical text of 'Revelations' is reflected in the piece on many different levels. There is the cyclical nature of man never learning from the lessons of his forefathers and a continual sense of impending doom runs through the show. At a time when natural disasters seem endemic, the show provokes reflection on how the real disasters that affect our life are sometimes to do with global events as well as close relationships. There is some sparkling narration by an emcee-styled Satan (or God?) who pulls off some of the text's more controversial lines. So mischievous is he that if your personal relationships are experiencing difficulty you may want to blame him. But who is this ebullient, charismatic, glittering man; Satan or God? Like the book of Revelations this work has more than one interpretation (and a cracking finale). Apocalypse Now!
