Thomas Edison vs. Nikola Tesla. Otherwise known as the War of the Currents, the battle between the two inventors to claim supremacy in electric power inspired this high-voltage mixed-media performance spectacular commissioned for the 2012 Jerusalem Festival of Lights. The show combines a variety of elements: specially-made musical instruments, massive video art projections including video mapping on the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem and eleven skilled performers in constant movement, playing on different instruments and musically juggling between different sounds.
