"The Emperor’s New Clothes"  - "Hakaron" Theater

The actress presents the popular Hans Christian Andersen story in a unique, delicate and sensitive way. Objects from the world of sewing become characters in the show. They come to life in front the enchanted spectators’ eyes, from turning a bobbin of thread, a button, thimble and needle to a soldier in a whole regiment of soldiers that look like him.

The show addresses the theme of social justice and excessive consumerism, using old objects that gain a new lease of life on the stage.
