Towards the end of the WWII, sculptor Natan Rappaport used granite stone, meant for a monument celebrating Hitler’s victory, to create a sculpture commemorating the fighters of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.
Forty years later, Yinon Tzafrir and his theatre group ‘Orto-Da’ arrive in Poland to perform their play ‘Meta-Rabin’. Because of a delay in their flight back to Israel they found themselves at a ceremony commemorating the fighters of the Warsaw Ghetto, at the place where the sculpture stands. Yinon was left with a strong impression from the sculpture, and was moved to create a play with it as a central hero.
The theatre group present a performance of the Israeli Jewish narrative, spanning from the time of Holocaust until today. Without dialogue, but with movement and gestures of the ‘live’ sculpture, Fringe Story presents a critical view of the modern Jewish Israeli existence.
