Article publié le 19 June 2023

Until February 2024 at the Manchester Jewish Museum

The exhibition “Take a Load Off” offers visitors to the museum a taste of the Sabbath. As a day of rest, a time for gathering, praying, singing, eating and talking together. Every Saturday, the museum offers visitors two special sound installations. The work has been created from oral history clips from the museum’s collection, interviews with Mancunian Jews who talk about their meanings, memories and sensations of the Sabbath. Produced by multidisciplinary arts company No Ordinary Experience, the piece was directed by musician and sound designer Ben Osborn, in collaboration with theatre artist Georgina Bednar and actress Rachel-Leah Hosker.
