We are celebrating a premiere – people from different cultural backgrounds, young and old, Jewish and Muslim, met, discussed, and rehearsed this reinterpretation of the biblical flood story in the form of light and shadow theater. The youngest participant was five and the oldest 78 years old. The group transformed this story from the Torah and the Koran into a musical Karagöz spectacle. Music is a must too – a Turkish and a Hebrew choir will accompany the performance.
