T-Shirt design for The Names performance by Ariel Efraim Ashbel and friends, influenced by rock bands shirts 🤘 and “the Burning Bush” biblical story 🔥. From Arnold Schönberg’s opera “Moses und Aron” to traditional Yemenite sounds to Madonna’s “Like a Prayer”, Ariel Efraim Ashbel and friends arrange (pop-)cultural references into a rousing show. Following the traditional Jewish practice of weekly scripture readings, the group takes a passage from the Torah as the basis for a full-length spectacle 💥.
