Mount Hav­ila

MOUNT Hav­i­lah is a story that por­trays the deep in­ner part of an as­tral life. It draws a men­tal realm in the mind of the au­di­ence and takes them on an epic ad­ven­ture. It cre­ates a whole new world that ex­ists within and out­side the ex­ist­ing world, yet lan­guage and cul­ture re­mains the same. In the story, a young man by the name of Jehu, is anointed and re­leased to a place called Mount Hav­i­lah, he is de­clared as the cho­sen war­rior that must be sent to find the three se­cret scrolls that need to be re­stored to the vil­lage called Gi­hon. On his jour­ney he dis­cov­ers a place where long lost souls are trapped and corpses are mum­mi­fied, and where he feels a sense of hav­ing to awaken them back to life. Tick­ets R60, 6pm, Joburg Theatre, Braam­fontein
