Project Glamorous is the fifth part in a series of videos which follow the increasing success of a tycoon duo and their secretary, as they climb their way up high in the real estate chain. This time, they visit a construction site for their next prestigious project, but a horrible accident changes their plans…
Tzion Abraham Hazan, Rational Syncing
Tzion Abraham Hazan’s video-performance is a manipulation of speeches of Tel Aviv’s mayor, Ron Huldai. The speeches that deal with various local political issues are collected from documentations of city council meetings, which were uploaded to YouTube. Wearing a self designed mask, the anonymous hacker- hero activates the politician like a puppet on a string, although at times it is unclear who is manipulating whom.
Neta Weiner and Yonatan Kunda- Guided Tour
A guided tour among childhood alleyways and hidden architectural gems, between picturesque streets and historic junctions. Together we will sail from the realms of nostalgia towards the crumbling future. We shall end with a collective dipping into the obis of our subconscious, with a beautiful view of the sunset.
* Based on the performance “Al Hatel” which debuted at 8 degrees festival, Klipa theater. Written and performed by Neta Weiner and Yonatan Kunda; Directed by Raz Weiner.
Next month, “It’s Alive!” # 2 will take place on June 7th, with the participation of Nezaket Ekici
(Turkey/Germany), Sean Rogg England), and Shahar Marcus ( Israel).
