Stage Production

This course introduces the theatrical model of theodrama–based on the biblical- theological foundation, with implications for practical life, ministry, and mission–in the context of an actual stage production and performance by ACTS University students. Since 2014, Professor Daniel J. Kim has produced, choreographed, and directed a series of multi-arts (music, dance, mime, theatre, design, media) stage productions as a way of demonstrating “theology on stage.” ACTS University was invited to perform a 30-minute theodrama at the 4th Lausanne Congress (attended by some 5,000 international leaders) to be held at Incheon Songdo Convensia in September 2024. Through this course, the students are invited to participate in the entire process of planning, rehearsal, and performance of a special theodrama choreographed and produced for this historic Lausanne Congress
