Itay Dvori’s Comic Concert

Comic Piano Recital by Israeli composer and pianist Itay Dvori focuses on comic books and on Israel

The Comic Piano Recital by Israeli composer and pianist Itay Dvori, who lives in Germany, focuses on comic books and on Israel.

The program opens a window on contemporary drawing and music from Israel, which engage in dialogue with German works on the subject of Israel. The settings, some of which are composed and partly improvised, are performed live with a projection of the images of the graphic novels. On the one hand, the evening aims to provide an insight into the diversity of the meanwhile extremely lively comic scene in Israel, with settings for works, etc. by Asaf Hanuka, Michel Kichka and Rutu Modan. These books, sometimes humorous and sometimes serious, have all successfully appeared in many languages and portray contemporary life in Israel.

On the other hand, another part of the program will present books by German draftsmen who have written down their impressions of the country in an original way. A central work in the program is dedicated to Jens Harder's "Ticket to God" of the city of Jerusalem. The work shows the sanctity of this unique city for three world religions and at the same time their special history and everyday life. Barbara Yelin's book "First of all, be faithful to yourself", commissioned and conceived for an exhibition by the Goethe Institut Tel Aviv, tells of the extraordinary life story of Channa Marons, who in the Berlin of the thirties as a child prodigy starred in Erich Kästner's "Pünktchen and Anton "and later became one of Israel's biggest actresses.
