C U R R E N T P R O D U C T I O N
In a small cozy room, a woman is celebrating her birthday. There's cake, candles, but there is no joy. She is desperately busy trying to take the perfect "Selfie". The world must see her happy, everybody must know. As her attempts grow more frantic and grotesque, she seems to lose touch with reality and her surroundings, she collapses into her own privet, self-scrutinizing inner world. She eats obsessively; break her body into excessive shapes, failing to find some comfort in herself.
All through the piece objects come flying in out of nowhere , cushions and clothes, they keep reminding her and confronting her with the outside world and herself. She is under attack and must fight back.

What happens when you become a refugee? You walk.
True, in order to save your life—for example, as militants assault your village—you might first speed away by whatever conveyance possible. In the family car. Or in your neighbor’s fruit truck. Aboard a stolen bus. Inside a cart pulled behind a tractor. But eventually: a border. And it is here that you must walk. Why? Because men in uniforms will demand to see your papers. What, no papers? (Did you leave them behind? Did you grab your child’s hand instead? It doesn’t matter. Get out of your vehicle. Stand over there. Wait. Now, papers or no papers, your life as a refugee genuinely starts: on foot, in the attitude of powerlessness.
a physical theater that wishes to light not them but us. we wish to talk about the society that we live in. the way we treat the 'other' who seeks an asylum with in us but we see him as a threat. on stage you won’t hear them- you will hear us. And Angelina Jolie.
Operation Silk Gloves
(co- director with Ido Burstein for Ensamble Can)
an intenational Israel Festival productin
Operation Silk Gloves uses Israel museum space as a dramatic action arena, inviting us to re-dream the largest cultural institution in our country. During the show we will return to the opening ceremony's celebration, we will meet some invisible characters, those whose voices we don't hear: A tough security guard, standing in constant alert, protecting the counry's treasures. A registerer who spends his days in giant underground warehouses, an over enthusiastic military cultural guide and more. The characters lead the viewers into the heart of the museum and during that journey their own personal stories emerge through all of their official talk. The altenative journey gives birth to a thought provoking, infuriating, exciting and amusing story about the art/institution power relations and the way they shape our identity.
