The Cave Project

The Cave was presented by A&F at John Burroughs School, March 11-12, 2017

The Cave is a compelling multimedia presentation with video by Beryl Korot and music by Steve Reich. It features recorded interviews set to live music. Palestinians, Israelis and Americans were invited in the early 1990s to respond from their Muslim, Jewish and secular perspectives about the importance of the story of Abraham and his burial place, The Cave of Machpelah in Hebron. It is a place held sacred by Jews, Muslims and Christians.
