PuppetCinema/HaZira Performance Art Arena, Zvi Sahar

CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS: Social Studies (political conflict, freedom of speech), ELA (literature, journalism), Theater

Students are drawn into a miniature universe of political strife—created using puppetry, handmade sets, and meticulously choreographed live video—in this work by Israeli-born artist Zvi Sahar.

Inspired by the influential Israeli novel The Road to Ein Harod, by Amos Kenan—which tells the story of one man’s flight from his country’s latest military coup—Sahar and his company PuppetCinema offer a nuanced, imaginative, and impactful vision of the cycle of war. Plastic tanks barrel down paper streets, a faceless puppet becomes a hero, and a thousand pounds of salt are transformed into a Middle Eastern desert as one man fights for freedom.
