"I, export"- an original performance piece
What happens when you are "exported" into another place? What will you take with you? What stories will you tell, which ones will you re-invent?
Inspired by their own biographies, performer Claudia Schwartz and composer Shaul Bustan in collaboration with director Lechay Bekerman bring you "I, export"- an evening full of wit and stories: hilarious and, ultimately, moving.
