Apollon Studios proudly presents
Agni
6 - 17 December, 2017
Mission to Seafarers - 717 Flinders Street, Docklands


After the sell-out success of their 2016 season Jala, Apollon Studios proudly returns this year with Agni, the second production in their series of the five Vedic Elements Works; Water, Fire, Air, Earth and Ether.

Running from the 6th to the 17th of December in the stunning surrounds of Mission to Seafarers in Docklands, Agni (ægni/AG-nee) is a celebration of all the aspects of Fire and its power to protect, give life, and destroy.

“Malcolm Berry and I travelled through Mexico two years ago and India last year doing research for Agni.”, explains Director Scott Gooding. “The show is part of a longer artistic investigation and examines the idea of how giving AND destructive Fire can be. How even within the destruction there is the ability for it to generate new life. We've worked to create a true multi-art form event and it's exciting to see how audiences will interact with the pieces. We all tend to have a "go to" area for most of our art experiences, but with Agni we're offering a chance to step out of a comfort zone. To experience things that you wouldn't sometimes have access to.”

Promising to be an exhilarating event, Agni features a two week exhibition of paintings and drawings by Adelaide graphic artist Krystal Brock and painter Malcolm Berry, and a dynamic multilayered performance running for FOUR NIGHTS ONLY. This second instalment of the five planned events once again brings together a diverse team of artists and creatives and is a swirling dervish of theatre, music, and visual art. Featuring premiere works by award-winning playwright Robert Reid, musician Tim Wild (Taxiride), composer David Balaban and Artistic Direc-tor of Apollon Studios, Malcolm Berry, Melbourne art and theatre lovers are invited to experience this unique, one off celebration of the power of Fire.

Apollon Studios is a fine art and performance art facility providing annual events and art sales in Melbourne and Australia.

In April 2016 Apollon Studios presented a fine art, music and theatre event entitled "JALA" at the Mission to Seafarers, 717 Flinders Street, Docklands.

Part of the proceeds from Jala has been donated to the Mission to Seafarers, MIF Wellways, Victoria and MIND Australia respectively.


Jala was a resounding success in 2016, now look for fire next year with the ensemble presentation of Agni in 2017.

In 2015 Apollon Studios' artistic director Malcolm Charles Berry completed a highly successful exhibition at the Collingwood Gallery entitled "Relics".
