The Bible gives us a clear account of what Jesus' followers felt and saw when their Lord was crucified. Films have endeavoured to capture the crucifixion of Christ from His mother's perspective and the perspective of His disciples. But there is another congregation that peaks our curiosity, an assembly of angels who watched in horror as God, their Creator was chastised and crucified.
It was the angels who brought the news to Mary about the coming of the Son of God in her sacred womb, and it was the angels who announced the birth of Jesus to shepherds. But where were the Angels when the Son of God was crucified?
What did the host of angels think as they watched Son of God being scourged by the Romans? How did they feel when Christ carried His cross and fell numerous times? Did they want to fly and help Him rise? Did they weep to see the King of Universe so dejected, so humiliated, and so hated?
‘Resurrection as the Angels saw it’ is an amalgamation of physical theatre, paintings in motion and poetry on stage.
The play draws upon visual arts and makes an attempt to depict the visual scenes from paintings of Andrea di Cione, Giotto, Raphael, Paolo Veneziano and Reuben’s
