About Tiny Ocean: 

Two girls play in the water, making up stories and adventures about the tiny ocean they have created where anything can happen. 
A little silver fish and a little red fish set out on a journey. Will they discover the treasure? Will they become friends?
An exciting adventure, comically and magically set in an awe-inspiring and tempestuous ocean.
2 actresses, 5 aquariums, 62 fish, loads of water, with one hidden treasure and 100 little surprises.


  • The play won Honorable Mention award at the 2016 Haifa International Children's Theater Festival
  • Israel Children Theater Awards 2017, best Interdisciplinary Play.  

From the reviews

Liat Shabtai and Ma’ayan Reznik have produced a magical and beautiful show that takes place under the sea. With simple, compelling grace, they create an underwater world within an aquarium, bringing sea creatures to life … dancing before an audience astounded by the magic taking place on stage. This is wonderful, entertaining and creative puppet and object theater, with spectacular visuals so beautiful they moved us to tears


Nurit Asayag, Achbar Ha’Ir online

The Magical Theater prize goes to “Small Sea,” an exceptional puppet show created by Liat Shabtai and Ma’ayan Reznik. … The focus is on the original and amazing visual work they create using three aquariums and scraps of fabric attached to sticks…

Shai Bar Yaakov, Yediot Ahronoth


‘Small Sea’ … contains all the magic that theater can conjure up for young children and adults. Three aquariums become an ocean with the help of Liat Shabtai and Maayan Reznik, the wonderful creators and performers. A fan creates a storm while colorful pieces of fabric become fish and sea creatures of all shapes, colors and sizes. There are even chocolate coins in a treasure chest. The entire story takes place under water… This is not just another show but a magical experience, a journey into a wonderful legend.
