Ticket to God: A comic concert with Itay Dvori

Part of the Cultural Summer Program

Comic strips from and about Israel are set to music by composer and pianist Itay Dvori with his own compositions and live improvisations. Graphic novels from Israel’s still young but very lively comic scene are also included in the program.

Sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, Assaf Hanuka, Rutu Modan, Merav Salomon and other artists portray their present. Their works have been translated into many languages and received international recognition. German comic artists have also inspired the history and present of Israel. Jens Harder finds his very own pictures for everyday life and the holiness of Jerusalem in Ticket to God.

Israeli pianist, composer, and conductor Itay Dvori had the idea of setting comics and graphic novels to music in Berlin in 2016. Today the comic concert is already referred to as »new genre« (Deutschlandfunk).
