New Piece by ABRA Ensemble
ABRA is a vocal performance ensemble led collectively by four vocalists/composers, Chanan Ben Simon, Noa Haran, Yifeat Ziv, and Faye Shapiro. It's name is inspired by the Aramaic phrase 'Abra Ka Dabra' ('I shall create what I speak'), a potent illocutionary spell that grants speech with the power of creation. The four singer-composers collectively authored this work, which examines the role of the human voice in defining self identity through sound, music, movement, and light. Monday, August 3, 8pm.
