Monster In Jerusalem

Jerusalem’s street statues come to life in a fascinating summer performance produced by the Bloomfield Science Museum. With the help of his imagination the hero animates dozens of well-known Jerusalem statues, including Niki de Saint Phalle’s  Golem (the ‘Monster’ of Kiryat Yovel), Avraham and Hannah Yachin’s Giraffe, Yuval Rimon’s lambs, Ulrich Plesner’s dragon, and many more. The statues talk, sing and eat in the shade of trees inspired by Kadishman . They all come to life in an enchanted tale of will power, imagination, friendship, curiosity, and resourcefulness.

This unique Shadow Theater performance will be shown exclusively at the Bloomfield Science Museum in  collaboration with the Kumkum Theatre and  Dr. Patricia O’Donovan, who wrote, designed, directed and built the puppets, alongside the Light and Shadow summer activities for children and families.
