A movement performance combining visual images and sound.
Power is a raw material, a driving force. It creates and destroys, gives and takes, expands and deflates, a vital condition for existence. New realms emerge through actions that blur the lines between body, material, beauty, violence, and humor.
Within the body’s persistent resemblance to a sculpture and its downfall, the performance journeys through construction and dismantling, reality and refutation, abstract and concrete.
The piece was developed and presented with the collaboration and support of the School of Visual Theatre in Jerusalem. It premiered at the Acco Festival of Alternative Israeli Theatre (2019), and won the awards for Best Performance, Best Director-Creator, Best Music and Sound Design, and Best Set Design.
