Carmen – Dance Theater
An original Israeli adaptation of the well-known Spanish classic "Carmen", performed by the Israeli flamenco bandCOMPAS.
The COMPAStroupe, in collaboration with the painterYehuda Goldinand an actor, present an optimistic version, which calls for an end to violence between human beings.
The result – a contemporary and hopeful ending to the life story of "Carmen", the gypsy girl from Seville and her love for the soldier Don José.
In front of the viewer, the plot is woven on stage in dance, acting and painting, which join together in an extraordinary and original multi-sensory experience.
At a time when we are all dealing with the tragic consequences of violence in society, the play conveys a spirit of personal responsibility to the individual's commitment to stop the violence. The turning point that occurs at the end of the play demonstrates to the young viewer that anything, even the ending of a play, can be changed with the aim of avoiding aggression and bloodshed!

From the press
"IT'S COOL, IT'S WINDY, IT'S GOING TO "STEAL" YOU ON THE SPOT AND CALL IT "FLAMENCO". THE DANCE TROUPE "COMPAS" MAKES IT BIG. IF YOU SAY: "TOO BAD FOR THE TIME" FOR SURE, IT'S A SHAME TO WASTE EVERY MOMENT AND IT'S WORTH GETTING TO SEE, HEAR, FEEL AND GET EXCITED WITH A GORGEOUS DANCE RHYTHM IN THE PLAY "CARMEN". A SHOW, WHICH YOU MAY HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE... WHEN MICHAL AND HER DANCERS DRUM THEIR FEET ON THE PLANKS, YOU CAN CALL THEM: "FIRE IN THE LEGS"... THE PERFORMANCE: "CARMEN", BUILT OF DANCERS, ACTORS, PAINTERS AND MUSIC - LITERALLY A THEATER WITH A HUGE MESSAGE: SUPPRESS VIOLENCE!
The rhythm that comes out of their shoes comes to mind – and it works. An extraordinary and original multi-sensory experience."
