A hike through Kibbutz Barkai.
This work was constructed during an “artist’s residency” that I invented for myself, a journey I created for my audience and myself from a half-year’s life experience at the place where I grew up and which I left ten years ago. The audience visits an unfamiliar place that gains specific meanings through performative and designed manipulations and an encounter with local people.
The journey makes present tensions between the kibbutz itself (with its physical and emotional spaces) and my place in it as stranger/guest/local/hostess.
