The Dark of the Covenant
Here’s a neat video retelling — in 4½ minutes — the story of the Jews’ Exodus from Egypt, performed by the Attraction Black-Light and Shadow Theatre group, forwarded to me by my mother.
I kinda feel like the klezmer rendition of “Oseh Shalom Bimromav” that accompanies the mimed, silhouetted, trompe l’oeil narrative is a little too Dixieland peppy for the gravity of most of what’s depicted. And you probably have to be familiar with the story to follow what’s going on. But there’s no denying how imaginative and technically impressive this is.
My favorite moment is the burning bush.
