[Premiere : Habait Theatre]
Name Drop is an event examining the moments in which music becomes the soundtrack of our lives - Or is music only the excuse?
Nine performers with a cache of defining moments tied inexorably, almost involuntarily, to music, attempt to bring into words the connection between the wound and its tune – whether that tune is Nina Simone, Charlie Megira, techno or Rachmaninov; whether its Spanish ballads or "Jerusalem of Gold", Inbal Perlmuter or Infected Mushroom.
Death and separation, love and disappointment, sex and personal crusades – all of our lives have soundtracks. Unique, singular, burned into our psyches, ungoverned and unequivocal. The journey of Name Drop is a verbalization of life – intimate, painful – through the music that has always been there, that suddenly pops up, that will always take us back. Like a scent from our childhood, like mother's cooking…
