The first theatrical work by Oren Ailam, a graduate of Bezalel’s industrial design department and spoken word artist. As part of the creative process, Oren invited young men to explore images of masculinity, which they were exposed to at a young age and grew up with — and the disconnect between these images and their actual life experiences. The work comprises a collage of Israeli masculinity, shell shock, a desperate need for approval, vulnerability and offensiveness. Oren creates a staged setting in which male figures escape gender-roles and honestly meddle with their pain.
