//A musical piece in three  movements scored for twelve singers, bansuri flute, melodica, cello and percussion//

In between a live music video, an oratorio, an opera and a ritual, Song of Song of Songs explores the the relationship between the sensual and the sacred, the body and the spirit, through an exegesis of the Western world’s oldest erotic poem, Song of Songs.

Created with a dream team of artists including the theatre artists/miracle-makers/creative geniuses, Ethan Heard and Chase Brock.
