ALRA presents 'The Mysteries'
Post graduate acting students from Wandsworth's ALRA (The Academy of Live and Recorded Arts) present 'The Mysteries' this Friday at the ALRA Theatre, marking the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible.
Building on techniques developed by the highly successful and well-regarded junior schools tours of Tara Arts' When the Lights Went Out, The Mysteries will introduce children to the epic Bible stories from Creation to the Last Judgement.
This tour uniquely marries Tara Arts' renowned Asian theatre-making sensibility creating the tantalising prospect of experiencing the Old Testament stories through Eastern eyes.
Combining story-telling with dance and evocative props, The Mysteries will draw connections with other faith texts including the Qu’ran, Torah and The Mahabharata, with the aim of reflecting modern diversity through one of the founding texts of the country.
