In this work the artist, material and its transformations meet, constructing a language moving between animation and performance.
Two women play with sheets of paper on the floor, taking apart and putting together characters and a landscape in a two-dimensional world, wordlessly telling a children’s story for grownups. It is based on an autobiographical story of coping with separation and longing, rooted in the Israeli history of the kibbutz (collective community) and the experience of “collective overnight” at the children-house dormitory.

Created at the School of Visual Theatre, Jerusalem. Also performed at the International Puppet Theatre Festival, Jerusalem, the Hanut Theatre, Tel Aviv, the international puppet theatre festival Tallinn Treff in Estonia, and Puppetntheatertage in Austria.
