The show Spinning a Tale is a contemporary adaptation of the classic fairy-tale Sleeping Beauty, presented through puppets, wool and motion. The plot is weaved out of the two actresses, their movements, and their skirts. During the show these skirts are transformed - from clothing articles to scenery, from mellowness to danger, and from danger to a deep, enchanting slumber. The show presents the journey of a princess, as she leaves her safe and calm home, to explore the exciting outside world. A prick of her finger by a knitting needle puts her into a deep sleep. How will she wake up? A mixture of puppet theatre and concert dance, the show is focused mainly on the visual aspects of the performing arts - movements, textures, forms and colours, and the ways these elements interact. The show participated in festivals both in Israel and around the world, including The First International Puppet Festival in Yangon, Myanmar, The International Puppet Festival in Jerusalem and the International Puppet Festival in Holon, Israel.
