S/Bubblue, Umzingelung

The first part of the performance trilogy about a dress, created by Tamar Raban with various collaborating artists. Throughout the performance, Raban's blue dress unravels and divides into pieces that change their purpose. Concurrently, an unraveled dress is also sewn, to be used in the next performance. The cyclical actions are accompanied by a story of a mother that cuts away pieces of her own dress to sew a dress for her daughter: "From year to year, the daughter's dress grew in size while the mother's dress shrunk until there was nothing left of it". Present and participating in the performances were also Ori Drumer on music and Moshik Yosifov on light. The technical elements of the performances were deliberately left bare, so that the work to create the performance and the performance itself became a single entity in constant construction.
