Double feature Israel Erlanger and Adi Hellman
An evening with two performance works that look for a way to carve out defense mechanisms covering topics that, although they touch us, we don't always find the way to talk about them.

How does a child | Israel Erlanger
A comic absurd show of object theater and performance, which does not miss childhood.
As if they don't exist, Israel crosses and repeats and crosses the boundaries between humor and seriousness, between stage and audience, and between awareness and innocence and devotion. Through a childhood story told with wonderful associativeness, he talks about the collective childhood of all of us and the moments of shame and honesty that accompany it.
body language | Adi Hellman
A solo show about being a non-native speaker. About living in New York as a non-American and creating dance work as a non-dancer. Be ashamed of the accent but insist on participating in the conversation. To feel that this is not the way to do it, but to continue because that's the only way I know how.
The stage is a multilingual space where I would like to bridge the hesitant stammer (but free from the need to be precise) that I have in English, and the knowing (but fixed) decisiveness that I have in Hebrew, and the inarticulate (but intuitive) power that I have in movement. I seek freedom in surrendering to mistakes and inaccuracies, in a language that is not mine, and I prefer experience over silence.
Animation: Ofri Gil
The show was staged for the first time at the "Feel at Home" festival, Between Heaven and Earth, 2022
