What happens when bird droppings awaken 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 the present flirts with the past and shock is followed by laughter. In this performance we see 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.
“Stones” is performed at a variety of festivals:
Open air/indoor, day or night,
