Of Power and Passion – the story of the Passion of Jesus Christ. This is the first Theatre Mega Production by the CHRIST (Deemed to be University) students.

The Theatre Mega Production is the magnum opus of the students of CHRIST (Deemed to be University) performed every year by the students from CHRIST (Deemed to be University) from across all disciplines of the university. The script, the music, the Lyrics, the costume design, the Sets design, the publicity design and execution, are all other aspects of a play are conceptualized and executed by the students. The play is directed by Ms, Esther Yates (HOD Theatre Studies), under whose able guidance, the overall aspects and nitty gritties of the play are ably supervised.

 

Of Power and Passion comprises over 200 students from the University and several genres of the theatre-a Greek – style Chorus (in the Sophoclean mode), a script in 20th Century English, the CHRIST (Deemed to be University) Choir singing melodious Gregorian chants, the subtle intricacies of mime and a unique version of shadow play.

The play revolves around the Passion of Christ. It is not a retelling of the passion. Minor Characters from the Bible take centre stage as the politics surrounding the incidents that lead to the crucifixion of Christ are examined.
