A ten piece song cycle composed by jazz vocalist Ayelet Rose Gottlieb spans erotic love poetry from the bible. With director Franny Silverman and video artist Renate Aller, Gottlieb creates a multi-sensory experience that starts at the moment one steps into the theatre. The show combines movement, video projections and Gottlieb’s compositions. All the elements unfold the abstract narrative of the struggles of a woman in love.
