For more than twenty-five years the Benedictine monk Jonathan has suffered from a very special kind of epilepsy.
These days doctors would call his disease ‘prophesia’: to suffer from spells of prophecy. At first his case only raised interest within the medical community. Later it even caught the attention of some secret services.
The story of brother Jonathan serves as a base for a performance about the potential friction between ideas and their realization, between the Word and the Flesh.
Starting as a salon-like radio drama, it changes performative dimension to reveal hidden forces and open space for confrontation between performers and spectators.
