‘I believe,’ a light and sound show, conceived and presented by the Cochin Arts and Communication (CAC), the art and cultural wing of the Archdiocese of Verapoly,  will be staged at St Albert’s High School Ground  for ten days from Sunday.

‘I believe’ comes from the team which conceived and staged  the light and sound show, ‘Ammamaram’, which had been widely acclaimed last year. The show features the lives of 20 saints, who lived in different times in different parts of the world in different cultures. The show highlights how deep rooted was their faith even  when they faced the toughest times in their lives.

Apart from the content and the theme, the show  has certain unique features.  The pavilion modelled like a ‘sandwich’ is set in a rampart. The spectacular show will be performed on the 12,000 sq ft sprawling stage. Music and costumes from 20 nations and cultures are used. Apart from 400 actors, 200 dancers will add flavour to the show. The 2.15 hour-long show will begin at 6.30 pm on Sunday at St. Albert’s High School Ground. Arch bishop of Verapoly, Francis Kallarakkal will inaugurate the show, which will be on stage at 6.30 pm till November 19.  

CAC director Fr Capistan Lopez masterminded the story and the concept. Abhilash Fraizer  penned the script. Other renowned artists  who have associated with the CAC to realise this project include  Berny-Ignatius duo, who had composed the music, and actor-director Lal who narrates the story.

Fr Capistan said that the show is  a re-reading of their lives in the context of the socio-cultural-ethical problems of today. The events are intricately linked to the current issues like divorce, abortion, extra-marital affairs, cruelty towards children and ill treatment of the elders. The Show will be organised in collaboration with the Catechetical Department of the Archdiocese and Family Apostolate,” he said.
