Theatre play:

What happens when bird feces awakens an entire monument of hero fighters?
“Stones” is a visual poetic event, created by Yinon Tzafrir.
This performance is inspired by “The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising Monument” by Nathan Rapoport (1911-1987).
“Stones” 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, full 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.
The performers prove that poetry & imagination are the tools that can transform even the ugliest moment in history into beauty and hope. By means of subtle acting, a unique soundtrack & original visual metaphors “Orto-Da Group” creates a new theatrical language.

Viewer reviews

‘It is a show full of beauty, but also an irony in which 5 actors and 1 actress ‘’live’’ on the scene like a monument. Richness of poetic elements perfect acting, great light and music, are just some few elements of this perfect and great theater story’
PUFF theatre festival PULA CROATIA 2008
‘The ORTO-Da Theater offers a mime show of rare creativity, original, intense and poetic. It stirs our conscience and heightens our emotions with modesty and delicacy’
