ZEBRA

מיטל רז, מתוך ההצגה זברה

Review on ZEBRA from FEMME Magazine (France)

 

A table, a lamp, a bouquet of parsley, a few characters and that's it. For Israeli puppeteer Meital Raz, her show "Zebra" is almost the anti-theater. No music or artifice, her performance is so refined that the slightest breath, every sound of fingers on the table is important.  In this story, zebras, birds and other characters are born from the hands and face of the actress a few meters from her audience. Everything goes through the gesture. A whistle, a few smiles, a touch of interactivity, everything is simple and fair. The 20 minute of the show flows like one second. Refreshing!

 

Minimalistic table theater with objects, puppets and fingers, without words

A small table. Ten fingers . One woman. A touching love story and a tragedy that will make you laugh with sorrow. 

 

This is the true story of two zebras falling in love, a bird that's having its first chick and a small child who misses his mother. 

 

It is also a story about flying, surprising encounters, unlikely coincidences, rejection, being abandoned and other little catastrophes.
