|The King and His Beloved|
This particular dance/drama was first performed about eight years ago by teens who are now grown and on their own. A couple musicians came up with original music to fit the action of the scenes. Parts of it brought tears to the eyes of some of the viewers. Based on that, I believe this had the impact we hoped for.
This dance/drama is an allegory of the redemption story.
You have a King.
The Enemy captures the Beloved after enticing her away from the King.
You have His Beloved.
You have an Enemy.
The Enemy entices the Beloved away from the King.
The King battles the Enemy, giving of Himself voluntarily to set His Beloved free.
|The King battles the Enemy.|
I am in process of preparing an ebook to tell the story which, by the way, is NOT intended to be read during the dance/drama. The ebook will also contain the Scriptures that are relevant to the story, and notes to help other teams use this dance/drama to share the redemption story in a powerful way.
|The King takes on himself the chain from his Beloved and gives His life for her.|
I know at this season, churches and youth groups may be looking for something special to do as we celebrate Good Friday and Easter this year. If this sounds interesting to you, look for the ebook on Amazon later this week.
I will most likely give it the title "The Beloved and the King", but you could also find it by typing in my name. I'll post again when it is available.
For now...I need to get back to editing.
