Butterflies in the Sunrise
Three performative acts
The interdisciplinary ensemble of Hasimta Theatre
Directing, text, music and movement: Idan Zilberstein
Three stories about three women in their search for freedom.
A laboring mother wishing to free her child before its birth,
A girl reclaiming fire from the decadent high-class society
A vanished woman turns into a leader of the resistance force against a tyrannical regime.
Layers of narrative, visual and physical work, music, video, light and sound pose the question: why does one need freedom?

The ensemble was founded by the initiative of Irit Frank, the director of Hasimta Theatre in June 2018. "Butterflies in the Sunrise" came together through research and the quest for a contemporary theatrical language. In recent months, the ensemble has founded a line of parties, Zagopa Party, which feature performative segments.
