Atar Trio performs Gregor’s Dream on Sufrisica
June 2 @ 12:00 pm
The Atar Chamber Ensemble will perform Gregor’s Dream on their Sufrisica Festival at the new Studio Annette in Tel Aviv. Sufrisica is a portmanteau word combining story and music – perhaps translated as Musical Literature. Commissioned for their touring program Dream Within a Dream, Gregor’s Dream refers to Gregor Samsa’s anxious dream from which he awakens transformed into a terrible bug! While still a member of his family, he is certainly not treated as one. This seemed apt for the terrible treatment of immigrants in so many societies – part of our human family, but not treated as such. There will also be a dramatization of the Metamorphosis, with music provided by the Atar Chamber Ensemble, led by Ofer Shelley. For more about Gregor’s Dream, visit here.
