Synopsis of the play Prophecy

This dreamlike play can be perceived and interpreted by an audience in different which is why it is so attractive. The director uses the entire arsenal of theatrical skills of the “Lieder Company” to bring to life a wildly shifting story, stating: “The Prophecy gives us the opportunity to work in an experimental space …” You can view Prophecy as an intellectual challenge; a riddle that needs to be solved and deciphered. “Self-ordained prophets” rule the stage striving to enlighten us and each other. Every sort of theatrical device is employed to suggest contexts of ecological crisis, human greed, competing spiritual doctrines or the not-so-focused lens of modern media.
