ABOUT THE PRODUCTION
Using audio recordings, light design, and projected images on eight TV screens, PA’AM wishes to offer the audience a stroll between fragments of memory, longings and introspection. Recorded texts, projected texts, and images reveal the three main stories, told autobiographically by well known Israeli figures - musician Eran Zur, actress Ora Meirson and actor Doron Tavori. The stories, a mixture of facts, thoughts, nostalgic longing and guilt, are coiled together into a mosaic of broken memories producing an hybrid image of the past. The lighting and the screens, projecting texts, and many different images are the actual performers in this work, giving additional layers of information to the spoken word. Pa’am is a fascinating and compelling narrative of the complexity of the human condition, where light, video, images, sound and the human voice fill the stage and create a whole and unique experience.
