TZAR TZURA (TRANSFORMING THE FORM)
Supported by MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS OF ISRAEL
From ancient and medieval poetry describing the story of creation of man, a modern fairytale is born, about love between a man and a woman, angels, animals and the birth of the first child.
- In order to create an original theatrical language that will be understood by an international audience, Mystorin theatre creates a visual language that reflects the narrative of ancient texts, minimalist and concise, but rich in visual images, full of different meanings and interpretations. Through movement, singing and visual theatre the performance communicates with the audience both as a story and as a total experience with a strong visual impact. As part of the creative process actors study ancient texts and artists’ personal interpretations of these texts are incorporated into the performance. This unique approach, which combines methods of traditional Jewish learning with improvisation, has been developed by the Mystorin Theatre Group throughout its previous artistic projects and gives new insight into the sophisticated world of ancient poetry. The group successfully performed at international festivals such as INFANT theatre festival in Serbia, HIGHFEST in Armenia, Sibiu festival in Romania and others in Russia and Poland.
