NOT LETTING IT IN
“Gives hope that performance art is still alive and kicking” - PoSham mag
“Not Letting It In” is a 7 hour, singular, improvised event that explores the art of confessions.In “Not Letting It In” performers from around the world, sit around a table and confess real autobiographical confessions. The “communal task” given to the performers is to create, along with the audience, a new zone, a temporary community, a haven ( or hell ? ) , a playground of no comment and no judgment. During the 7 hours the audience is welcome to join, leave and come back as they wish. In this spirit, the audience is welcome to confess as well.
“No family dinner or hang with your closest friends can be compared to the exposure and honesty of this show” - Haaretz
[Premiere : Habait Theatre]
Name Drop is an event examining the moments in which music becomes the soundtrack of our lives - Or is music only the excuse?
Nine performers with a cache of defining moments tied inexorably, almost involuntarily, to music, attempt to bring into words the connection between the wound and its tune – whether that tune is Nina Simone, Charlie Megira, techno or Rachmaninov; whether its Spanish ballads or "Jerusalem of Gold", Inbal Perlmuter or Infected Mushroom.
Death and separation, love and disappointment, sex and personal crusades – all of our lives have soundtracks. Unique, singular, burned into our psyches, ungoverned and unequivocal. The journey of Name Drop is a verbalization of life – intimate, painful – through the music that has always been there, that suddenly pops up, that will always take us back. Like a scent from our childhood, like mother's cooking…
