Know the story before auditioning
DELIVER US is a 2 hour dance production about the biblical story of Moses found in Exodus.
Our story begins with a synopsis showing the enslaved Israelites all dressed in white. They are working hard. A Jewish woman named Jochebed appears to be fleeing with a child in a basket. She eventually sets her baby afloat on the Nile. The scene changes to the palace courtyard with beautiful women in long sleeveless dresses with gold accents and colourful beaded jewellery. The baby is found by pharaoh’s daughter. The baby is raised as an Egyptian. Moses eventually comes to the knowledge of the death of Israelite boys. After killing an Egyptian taskmaster, he flees to Midian. He removes pieces of clothing representing Egypt along his journey. He encounters 7 women (daughters of Jethro). The women welcome him. He marries Zipporah.
God appears in a burning bush. God asks Moses to deliver the Israelites from Egypt. Moses is hesitant. With the help of his brother Aaron, he eventually leaves to confront Pharaoh.
Since Pharaoh continues with his brutality. God sends 10 plagues. The 10th plague causes the death of Pharaoh’s son. Pharaoh goes into a deep depression. With one finger pointing he lets the Israelites Go. Pharaoh changes his mind and sends his army after them. The Israelites feel trapped with the Red Sea before them and an army after them. God parts the waters. The Israelites celebrate in the new land.
