How would you train a dog-cube?

At the Cubes Circus, anything can happen! A couple of clown-dancers set in motion a wondrous world of cubes. They wear cubes, dance with them and create a joyful world.

An original performance combining puppetry, visual art and dance-theater.

The show has won many prizes and performs in festivals around the world.

From the reviews

A performance based on the highly imaginative use of blocks that attach to the bodies of two actors/dancers and transform into all sorts of shapes and creatures.  The acting is superb with delightful musical accompaniment, and the result is a light, intelligent and highly enjoyable play that adults will enjoy, too.Shai Bar-Yaakov, Yediot Aharonot

This show emanates magic in a way we haven’t seen onstage for a long time.  One actor and one actress, working seamlessly together … create an entire world out of cubes ... with a combination of clever lighting effects and impressive hand and body work.  Towards the end of the show, when a ballerina wearing a skirt of cubes twirled sweetly onstage to a dreamy melody, I felt my child melt in my arms, and I melted completely along with her.Noa Rivlin, Time Out

Lovers of movement and dance can’t help but enjoy the show and be moved and thrilled by this bit of dance theater with no words, but plenty of blocks. The performance conveys the unique beauty of puppet theater, the integration and collaboration between the puppets’ and accessories’ creator on the one hand, and the actors/operators on the other.  The fantastic acting and movement of the actors/dancers, their sounds and facial expressions, bring the cubes to life...  The synchronous movement between the live characters and the cubes is so perfect, it’s hard to know which came first – actor or cube, dancer or box.Nurit Assayag, Achbar Ha’Ir Online
