Most Israeli flash mobs I’ve seen are well(ish) choreographed routines set to, what could charitably be called, “inane drivel.” Why not something with a little class, huh? Something that reminds people that they can (and should!) set their sights higher than line dancing to pop songs. Something that, while plenty flash-y, could hardly be described as a “mob”?
How about something like… this?
Filmed at the newly opened Jerusalem railway station, “fifty students from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, together with children from Sderot’s Perach Tutorial Project, gathered at Jerusalem’s first railway station for a surprise Purim concert” a few weeks back to perform a piece from Tchaikovsky’s “Sleeping Beauty.”
This flash (non-)mob performance was part of the international celebration of “Good Deeds Day” – an event which originated in Israel in 2007 and is now celebrated across the world.
