A play based on Joseph Heller's novel "God Knows".
"This zany, sexy version of the story of King David, told as a modern allegory of what it is
like for a Jew to survive in a hostile world, is "original, sad, wildly funny, and filled with roaring . . .
Heller's King David, a splendid creation, is not so much a man for all seasons as man in all his seasons".
(The New York Times Book Review)
The director Gili Shanit adopted the book to a monodrama, with Avinoam Mor Haim playing King David.
Vocals: Keren Hadar and Anat Slonim.
Writing the music for this play led me to a fascinating journey of researching (a bit) and imagining (mostly) about the instruments and the musicians of that time, and the sound-space in which they created music.
... the big historical drama in the background of the play is portrayed by the impressive music of Arie Zonshine ...
