Michal Svironi combines art and theatre to create a colourful collage of separation. Using broad strokes of colour, she creates characters who have left their impression on her. They come to life in a macabre parade, filling the stage. Each figure is a creation in itself, passing through dimensions to tell its story. In a fragile, multi-generational, humorous and poetic collage, we are left asking: what remains of our past, and what will we leave behind? Is it even possible to be a blank slate?
The participation is supported by The Embassy of the State of Israel in Zagreb.
MICHAL SVIRONI, PARDES HANA KARKUR, THE STATE OF ISRAEL
Michal Svironi – Creator, clown, puppeteer, performer. She is a leading, award winning, independent theatre creator living in Tel Aviv. For the past 20 years, her various works have been performed in 20 countries around the globe (Europe, the Far East and Africa).
She has a personal, yet communicative theatrical language, using mixed genres and humour. Svironi combines the art of theatre with different crafts and has mastered this in her latest show, Carte Blanche, where she combines plastic art with theatre to create a unique stage language she calls Paint-theatre.
She graduated from Ecole Jacques Lecoq and La Sorbonne and learned from the clown master Eric Bluet. Her theatre is in constant search for innovative ways to express deep psychological processes and transform them into theatrical events. Her universe is poetic and abstract, absurd and impactful. Specialized in interactivity, she creates for the indoors and outdoors.
