A little about me
I love puppet-theater. For some 15 years, I created shows, wrote, processed, designed and performed. I also collaborated with other artists, such as Natalia Rosenthal, Re’ut Shachar and others. For the past ten years, I have been involved in touch therapy, a direct extension of my method of expression and creation in theater. Through this work, I listen to stories as they are told through people’s words and bodies. I retain contact with the theater through the Incubator and The Train Theater specifically, and artistic puppet theater in general.
