Girl Butterfly Girl - learning the song-cycle Tsippi Fleischer contributes to
co-existence: Arab and Jewish children learning
"Girl Butterfly Girl".
Filmed in the Music Conservatory of Ma'alot-Tarshikha,
As Language of the Stones (2018) A video art created by the artist
Dorit Feldman (1956-2020), inspired by the
first song of the Song Cycle "Girl Butterfly
Girl". Each word of Fuad Rifka's poem received
a magnificent visual treatment - sand, cavern
filled with light, melancholic stars...
all were interwoven into her own world,
and the name of the work "As Language of
the Stones" reflects that. Dorit used footage
from performance versions, Opus 4, in French,
Arabic and Hebrew. The texts were inserted
to the running video in the language sung
at that moment. The font of the Arabic,
Dorit chose, is especially conspicuous and
merges with the image of the stones.
The complete film is available on DVD
at a special price(7:15 min.)
Tsippi "Girl Butterfly Girl" is Tsippi Fleischer's
most-performed work. The texts are by Lebanese
and Syrian poets; it follows that the original
version of the song-cycle is in Arabic.
The work has been performed throughout the
world in numerous versions in many different
languages and ensembles.
