Holy Places, Holy Books

Sleichim/Abdulrasol/Rivka/Plumer
[hybrid]

Holy Places, Holy Books brings Rome, Mecca and Jerusalem to Antwerp. Discover the differences and similarities between Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Eric Sleichim, composer in residence at the MAS, created a sound sculpture for this exhibition. He was also asked to provide the music for the opening and presents the very first project with BL!NDMAN [hybrid]. A singer (Reut Rivka), a qanun player (Osama Abdulrasol) and a percussionist (Etienne Plumer) form a unique quartet around Eric Sleichim (saxophones & electronics). With the 3 monotheistic religions as a starting point they present a program meandering from contemplation to ecstasy.
