Jerusalem, a city permanently expanding in the shadow of its monumental architecture. A cauldron of conflicting interests, the centre of current world politics. All fractures meet there, in the navel of the world.

Jerusalem [#1], the first performance by BERLIN in 2003, became a city portrait on three screens. Images of East and West, the calvary, a party at the Wailing Wall, Friday prayer, the security wall, a Palestinian bagpipe rehearsal, refugee camp Shufat, the checkpoints, an orthodox moon walk.

The 2003 performance remains topical. In 2013, ten years after the film recordings for the first performance of Jerusalem, BERLIN visits the holy city once more. Interviewees were called on once again, images superimposed, a discussion repeated. Jerusalem revisited.

Peter Van Laerhoven composed the soundtrack and worked with a number of musicians for the writing and live performance of the new music.

On Friday 21.02 aftertalk with Bart Baele/ Yves Degryse.
