Murder

Düsseldorf, Germany, a Hanoch Levin play translated to German. The stage was divided into 20 parts which separate during the performance. Three display screens surround the stage like an arena. During the performance, the screens change location and the video display follows their movement, in exact synchronization.

We filmed the video content in Jericho, in the desert and in Tel Aviv. We used the edges of the Israeli landscape to define invisible borders and blur out the existing ones.

The video continues throughout the performance, creating an emotional, uninformative environment. For example, the edges of the body become the edges of earth, shawarma roasting becomes landscape during sunset, and land and cities become humanly meaningless texture.
