BANK WINDHOEK & LAB THEATRE PRESENT “PONTIUS WHO?”
Bank Windhoek and Lab Theatre present “Pontius Who?”. This Musical, Drama and Theatre production will be staged on 27, 28 and 29 April 2017, at 19:00 at the Eros Dutch Reformed Church (NG Church) in Windhoek.
Aldo Behrens crafted the story and text, based on a follow up of “Pontius Who?” in 2015, with a blind beggar who got his sight back and a time traveller, both being played by David Ndjavera. This year’s play will feature the well-known Big K’s Gospel Group, a group who impressed immensely in 2014 during the production of “A Whale in the Goreangab”.
The text, based on the story of Pontius Pilate, by Eric Emmanuel Schmitt, crafted an alternative understanding of the virgin birth and the resurrection of Christ. It will be seen from the perspective of a Roman citizen, a foreigner a, colonialist, a hard core politician, a non- Jew and a human being. The musical, drama and theatre production will explore the dilemma of Pontius Pilate who might have witnessed the manger birth of Christ in Bethlehem and whose wife, the stepdaughter of Caesar Tiberius, Claudia Procula, was cured by Jesus from twelve years of bleeding, when she touched the seam of his cloak.
