The Rehearsal

The Rehearsal


The Rehearsal, 2006, 5:00

The video shows the orchestra rehearsal of a composition by Hector Villa-Lobos performed by an orchestra of young women at San Francis Convent in Havanna/Cuba. The rehearsal becomes a metaphor for the course of human life, which is based on making continuously decisions influenced by a conductor. The church of San Francisco Convent does not only represent the symbol for the space hosting the “big conductor” where the moral principles are rooted and may manifest themselves, but also a place for the countless rehearsals in human life, the cathedral of life which is protecting those who believe in it.
