As part of the cooperation in the framework of culture agreement between Israel and Myanmar: the Embassy of Israel in Yangon will organize the following two events: (1) Workshop with students and teachers from “National University of Arts & Culture in Yangon” on 15 December 2014 and (2) performance of “Israeli Orto-Da Theatre Group: Stones” at Kokkine Swimming Club, Bahan, Yangon, at 6 p.m. on 16 December 2014 (Tuesday).
“Orto-Da” Theatre Group, led by an Israeli artistic director Yinon Tzafrir, had won so many international theatre prizes since it was established in 1996 in Israel. Now the Embassy is bringing them to Myanmar audience to experience their outstanding talent of creating unique theatre events.
“Stone” is a visual poetic event, created by Yinon Tzafrir. This performance is inspired by “The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising Movement” by Nathan Rapoport (1911-1987). “Stone” tells a story through the eyes of a sculpture that comes to life; this is an ironic journey through the twentieth century, a journey among spirits and memories. “Stones” is an original and surprising performance, fill of strong images. A bitter-sweet event, where laughter goes alongside the breathtaking & the present flirts with the past. This show deals with passion for life, heroic myth and victory of the spirit. By means of subtle acting, a unique soundtrack & original visual metaphors “Orto-Da Group” creates a new theatrical language.
Further information concerning the event is available at Embassy of Israel-Tel: 515115 (Ext:3).
