Event Details

Israeli singer Victoria Hanna synthesizes her performance Magic Spells with The CJM’s exhibition Jewish Folktales Retold: Artist as Maggid, musically exploring the comparisons between Words as Life and the many legends of the Golem.

 

Jerusalem based artist Victoria Hanna is a world-renowned composer, creator, performer, researcher, and teacher of voice and language. The daughter of an ultra-orthodox rabbi, she has been greatly influenced by her childhood environment. In her work, she deploys a variety of vocal techniques in the performance of ancient and modern Hebrew texts, among them the Sefer Yetzirah(Book of Creation), an early Kabbalistic treatise. Victoria draws inspiration from the ancient Hebrew tradition, which relates to the voice, mouth, and Hebrew letters as tools of creation. Stylistically, her creations span from traditional Jewish music to new music and hip-hop.  

Victoria Hanna's residency at The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life, UC Berkeley, is supported by the Schusterman Visiting Artist Program of the Israel Institute.
