DON’T POKE THE BEAR
Max is an obedient bear who has lived in the circus all his life. Between the glory of the limelight and the darkness of the backstage, he reveals the cruelty of his master Harvey and the suffering of Tina, the star of the show whom he secretly loves.
When Tina’s despair pushes her to rebel on stage, the three are led to their last act and to the inevitable end.
A puppetry play without words about dreams, nightmares and broken hopes.
THE KEY THEATRE, TEL AVIV, THE STATE OF ISRAEL
The Key Theatre was established in 1998, a collaboration between writer Dikla Katz and actor Avi Zlicha – graduates of Tel-Aviv University from the Film and TV and Theatre departments respectively. Their personal backgrounds have led them to explore puppetry, where they found a fruitful ground in which the plot and the visuals intertwined in numerous ways. As a theatre that travels in Israel and abroad, The Key Theatre seeks to reach audiences from different backgrounds and strives to create thought-provoking theatre – a basis for acquaintance and understanding of the place we live in. Their non-verbal puppetry play When All Was Green (2012) won 12 international awards and was performed in more than 30 countries. Don’t Poke the Bear (2021) is their latest non-verbal puppetry play for the youth and adults.
