The Gospel According to Oxyrhincus. The film IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE IDEA is based on the production by Odin Teatret: "The Gospel According to Oxyrhincus". Between 1985 and 1987 it was performed in 12 countries in Europe and South America. "The Gospel According to Oxyrhincus" is the story of the revolt buried alive, the story of Antigone, and her brother Polynices. And the story of Zusha Mal'ak, the Jew, who is searching for the Messiah and comes upon a society, which has already found its Messiah. Here they speak Coptic and Old Greek, two dead languages, which nobody any longer understands.
