The show Atom presents a couple's relationship. Over the years he becomes controlling, she becomes submissive and introverted. During an everyday dinner, the relationship deteriorates and a violent process of change begins. The show draws inspiration from the movement of the atom (one of the components of any material) and trays to compare a relationship to a material, when both are affected by forces of attraction and rejection. This is a multidisciplinary show in the form in which it presents the story, ranging from dance, through shadow theater and all the way to animation and visual effects.
Parts of the show premiered at the 2012 Clipa Aduma and Intimadance festivals. Creators and Performers: Oded Zadok and Kazuyo Shionoiri sound designer: Jony Tal animation: Neta Kanfi lighting: Asi Gutesman photography: Tami Weiss thanks to: Irad Mazliach, Nava Zukerman, Idit Herman
The woman who did not want to come down to earth – a trilogy

Episodes in the life of a woman that refuses to touch ground. Up in the air, she obeys neither rules nor gravity, reaches extreme and absurd situations trying to preserve the unbearable lightness. A piece of total theater, combining movement in its extreme form, with speech and everyday objects.

Spring / Mime
butoh / mime
Clipa Theater is hosting Japanese artists once again. Two experts in their fields, for two unique solo performances - the creations of Butoh artist Nobuyushi Asai and mime artist Shu Okuno in one unforgettable evening.
The combination of Asai and Okuno confronts Butoh and modern mime and creates a productive dialogue from the early days of butoh art, when Kazuo Ohno met Marcel marso. Both approaches presented in two solo performances, enable a peek at two different worlds of images and rear physical expressions.
False Spring, a creation by Nobuyushi Asai, presents dutiful and fragile butoh, dealing with the essence of memory. The absolute space, costumes and movement design, are in a continues dialogue and struggle with the wonderful aesthetic tradition of the SANKAIJUKU group, in which he was a member for the past years.
Mime's anthology, a creation by Shu Okuno, presents a seemingly naïve story, about the attraction between the butterfly and the flower, with the precision and perfection that the classical mime and his Japanese tradition offer together.

On the stage: a little woman in a big box, a big man in a small box, a small box in a big box.
"Assuming every man had a box that contains something we call 'a beetle' and no one could ever look at another one's box, then everyone will know what is this beetle just by looking on their own beetle". (Ludwig Wittgenstein)

Wander with us through childhood alleys and beautiful hidden corners, between painterly streets and historical crossroads. Together we will sail into the landscapes of atrophied nostalgia, to the cliffs of time that are dying to fall. We will swallow a pill together and go into the unconscious where we will view the incredible setting of the silvery whiteness.

Love, hate, vengeance, lust, and sex - all in an epus that tells the tale of Jonathan, a green apple born to red apple parent, who strikes out on a journey crossing seas and continents, only to find that the apple does not fall far from the tree. This is an unruly object theater piece for apples, a set of knives, a cutting board and a table.

Ari Teperberg and Inbal Yomtovian are the Golden Delicious Ensemble. A comic perspective, engaging with a delicate touch and few objects the two create characters, stories, images and creatures.
"Our theater is created at home, in the kitchen or in the living room, with our personal belongings. We are playing with what is available." The works of this team are comprised of games, release, and precision all at once, and they carry away the audiences with the lightness and virtual of playing with objects. There is no illusion, not for one moment, but one nevertheless absolutely believes!
Both works were created In the framework of studies at the School for Visual Theater In Jerusalem under the guidance of Roni Nelken-Mosenson and Amit Drori

A Solo performance of object and Paper Theater
A lonely secretary remains in the office after all the other have gone home. From her little corner, using black and white photos from film magazines she keeps hidden between her endless piles of work, she escapes into a world of daydreams. There she is a glamorous movie star from the 1940's and finds her ideal love at last. But as the story unravels, as imagination and reality collide, her romantic tale becomes a Hitchcock nightmare!'
This is a performance dealing with the obsessions of Fantasies. How far we dive into them, the price of dreaming and the price of waking up. What lies beneath the Ideal Romantic love that is sold to us through such films, how powerful and insane can be our desire to hang on to that promise. This is also a performance dealing with the language of Cinema and its translation to theater and object theater. By recreating the means of cinema in the most " Low Tech" fashion, emerges a tension that is absurd and humorous.
The show received the award for ' Best Artistic Conception and Realization' at the International Adult Puppetry Festival of Pecs, Hungary (August 2010), and a Diploma of distinction from UNIMA (the worldwidepuppetry organization).
Created and performed by Yael Rasooly Design: Lior Lerman and Yaara Nirel Sound Design: Binya Reches Lighting design: Adam Yakin
Visual theater that hides passions and secrets behind perfect beings and bosoms.
Three women that "have it all" are vacationing in an exclusive resort, packed in their designer dresses, perched on high heels, walking mincingly around the perfect world of airport shopping malls and hotel suites within a shining impersonal existence.
But behind their perfect beings and bosoms they hide dark secrets deep and unexpected in their personas and slightly disturbed.
What happens behind closed doors and what does each one carry packed in her hard covered suitcases. What happens in their hotel room when they hang up the sign "Do Not Disturb"?
