PuppetCinema/HaZira Performance Art Arena
Zvi Sahar

A thousand pounds of salt become a punishing Middle Eastern desert, plastic tanks barrel down paper streets, and a faceless, nameless puppet[1] emerges a rebel hero in this work by artist Zvi Sahar.

Puppetry and hand-painted miniature sets combine with live filmmaking and projected video feeds, as a Lilliputian universe is created and destroyed before our eyes. In Salt of the Earth, inspired by the bestselling Israeli novel The Road to Ein Harod by Amos Kenan, Sahar and PuppetCinema show us a dystopic world, in which our protagonist—fleeing his country’s latest military coup—discovers the meaning of perseverance, survival, and ultimately, freedom.

Dramaturgy by Oded Littman
Design & Cinematography by Aya Zaiger
Music by Gai Sherf & Rona Kenan
Lighting design by Adi Shimrony
