Artist and graduate of the school, Moran Duvshani’s creative process derives from life. Her stage work is the result of a personal, multi-layered process such as returning to elementary school for a second chance or leaving her apartment in Tel Aviv and returning to the kibbutz, her childhood home. The performance of the process is just as important as what we see on the stage. For this new piece, My Turn, Moran, who works as a school and kindergarten teacher, met with children throughout the year. Together, they invented games and stories, learned and made up songs and dances, and conversed about life — their wishes, fears and preferences. Moran deepened her relationship with the children as well as with their parents, familiarized herself with their parenting, played with and questioned the role she plays: Moran, the teacher, who works on behalf of the children? Moran, the artist, who is working with art for art’s sake? Who’s turn is it now?
