The Whiting presents: Mayumana Currents
Enjoy this spectacular show that was inspired by the historical Battle of Currents between Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla in their quest for finding energy sources for the world. Audience members will be taken on a journey between two troops, each representing a different view of the essence of light and electricity and each inspired by a different esthetic and artistic approach, all of which are presented as a dialogue, through unique sounds, lights, and visual effects. The show combines a variety of elements: specially made musical instruments, massive video art projections including: video mapping on the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem and 11 skilled performers in constant movement, playing on different instruments and musically juggling between different sounds.
