The Israel Institute of Technology (The Technion) released a Passover video featuring an all new way to tell the story of the Jewish exodus from Egypt through technology and dance.

The video features a breakdancer acting out and moving through the Passover story. Beginning with the Jews being forced into slavery and building the pyramids, each dance move brings up another high tech image on the screen representing another piece or character in the story.

The dancer does a series of dance  tricks and a burning bush appears on the screen, representative of the burning bush in the Passover story where God revealed to Moses that he was chosen to take the Jewish people out of Egypt.

Another series of movements reveals the ten plagues brought down on Egypt to encourage Pharoah to free the Jews.

The long awaited exodus and the splitting of the sea round up the video along with a message wishing viewers a Happy Passover from the Technion.
