Hagigit at the 2009 Bat Yam Fest

[singlepic id=228 w=240 h=320 float=right]Hagigit, the artists’ collective I co-founded will take part in the 13th annual Bat Yam International Street Theater Festival this coming August. We were honored to have been asked to participate, as this will be our biggest, most expensive project to date, and based on previous years we will probably see our biggest crowd ever.
I will try to reveal as much details as possible before the event, but it is a bit of a struggle as there are many people involved and not everyone shares my notion of transparency. The graphics to the right is our teaser poster that will appear in the festival program, and following is the English text that will accompany it:

Look!
 
Time is fluid, reality debatable
our point of view is not where we think it is
everything we see has changed its shape
in the gap between one moment and the next
exists an opportunity to listen, to smell,
to see and to express.
 
Hagigit’s interactive installation invites the public, yourself included, to take the whole from its parts, the revealed from the concealed, and yourself away from anyone else.
 
Location: Sela Beach parking lot, Bat Yam, Israel
Dates: August 25-27, 2009
Duration: continuously between 19:00-23:00
Admission: Free
