The show SLEEPING explores the two states in which we pass our lives in: sleep and waking, constantly alternating between the two, and walking on the thin line that lies at their meeting point. Is "wakefulness" of the modern man is actually a kind of sleep? Modern man is asleep. This is not the state of sleep where one is found in his bed but it is far from wakefulness, as it is far away from night's sleep. In this state of sleep he thinks, does, acts, feels and manages his life and his surroundings but In fact, he is asleep and all of his activities are nothing more than a mechanical movement in the automatic stream of life. The two characters in the show are constantly migrating within their life story, in a journey of sleep. But this is not a good sleep, providing rest, but rather an anxious one, that leaves them even more exhausted than they were. They are struggling to escape, even for just a moment this sleep that was prescribed to them. Their encounter is constantly reshaping their story, which is not subject to the laws of reality, but rather built from their dreams, memories, and fears that reside within them. He wants to sleep; she wants to awake, as they interact, sometimes in agreement, sometimes forcibly, actively or passively, until their stories become one.
A story not driven by a plot, told through the body and objects, almost without words and with the help of humor - that allows us to overcome despair, and go far beyond all... The show is accompanied live by the musical duo "Krichi - plachi" (Guitar, clarinet, vocals) with beautiful original music. Krichi-Plachi duo creates rich and unique theatrical music that combines text, music and sound, into a soundtrack that accompanies the show, and takes the viewer where words end, to the world of the sub-conscious speaking the language of symbols and emotion.
