Around 70AD a horrible destruction occurred in ancient Judea. Was it a will of God? Or was it human wrong decisions and malevolent emotions? UCSD music department's Steve Schick and Philip Larson will present the ancient story in a highly avant-garde cultural setting that is meant to teach as much as entertain. In a multi-functional presentation that combines playing, acting, interacting, and debating, the universality of the dilemmas present in the story will be analyzed from modern research perspectives by experts and with public participation. Information technology and hypermedia are used to link ancient Rome and Jerusalem to Cuban missile crisis, conflict resolution, limits of human rationality, emotions and belief.
