After the sell-out success of their 2016 season 'Jala', Apollon Studios proudly returns this year with 'Agni',
the second production in their series of the five Vedic Elements Works; Water, Fire, Wind, Earth and Aether.
Running from the 6th to the 17th of December in the stunning surrounds of Mission to Seafarers in Docklands, 'Agni' (ægni/AG-nee) is a celebration of all the aspects of Fire and its power to protect, give life, and destroy.
“Malcolm Berry and I travelled through Mexico last year doing research for 'Agni'.”, explains Director Scott Gooding. “The show is part of a longer artistic investigation and examines the idea of how giving AND destructive Fire can be. How even within the destruction there is the ability for it to generate new life. We've worked to create a true multi-art form event and it's exciting to see how audiences will interact with the pieces. We all tend to have a "go to" area for most of our art experiences, but with 'Agni' we're offering a chance to step out of a comfort zone. To experience things that you wouldn't sometimes have access to.”
Promising to be an exhilarating event, 'Agni' features a two week exhibition of paintings and drawings by Adelaide graphic artist Krystal Brock and painter Malcolm Berry, and a dynamic multilayered performance running for FOUR NIGHTS ONLY. This second instalment of the five planned events once again brings together a diverse team of artists and creatives and is a swirling dervish of theatre, music, and visual art. Featuring premiere works by award-winning playwright Robert Reid, musician Tim Wild (Taxiride), composer David Balaban and Artistic Director of Apollon Studios, Malcolm Berry, Melbourne art and theatre lovers are invited to experience this unique, one off celebration of the power of Fire.
