SONG / JEW CACTUS SAXOPHONE or REFLECTIONS ON THE BOOK OF NUMBERS
Elischa says of the piece:
We have five minutes to sing about that one time when our hearts were eaten by the bulls and hung down the beautiful Joshua Trees in the desert of Landers, California. We had a dance, tried to make sense of moon juice and chest hair and pressed it all into a song. SONG/ Jew Cactus Saxophone or reflections on the book of numbers is the second item of a series of short choreographies for two musicians, conceived during the first shower in Los Angeles, after staying in the desert. Joshua Trees are slightly awkward looking creatures living in the desert in California, who can't quite decide whether they are palm trees, tree trees or humans.
