Zvi Sahar, Puppet Cinema
Suddenly (based on stories by Etgar Keret)

December 1 & 2, 2017. 8PM

Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Kogod Theatre

Daily life is complicated, dangerous, and full of yearning.The living and the dead; dreams and waking life coexist in an uneasy world overflowing with absurdity, humor, sadness and compassion. We encounter a strangely endearing group of imprisoned misfits hell bent on holding a mirror up to nature and smashing it into smaller shards. The only way they can free themselves is to allow the release of these stories, no matter the cost.

Adapted from acclaimed Israeli author Etgar Keret’s book of short stories, this multimedia performance inventively combines puppetry, theatre and film, exploring what happens when the story begins to control the story teller.

The development of this piece began during Zvi Sahar’s teaching residency in the School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance studies in Spring 2017, working in collaboration with UMD students and faculty.

Tickets: General Admission: Regular $25+, Student/Youth: $10

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

termiNATION is an in-process movement-based solo work investigating life and death through the lens of a pregnant war widow. Inspired by an adolescence and early adulthood steeped in the events of post-9/11 and the recent inauguration of Donald Trump, this piece explores the role women have to play as we carry this new era of politics to term. In the maelstrom of American culture, 21st-century colonialism and the cyclical blind faith to trust the institution, termiNATION looks to use the last sixteen years worth of politics, perspective and war to ask ourselves what kind of world we want to create for our children.
