The fantastic, surreal work of seven dancers that explore the concept of utopia through text, song, and dance. Following their International success with previous productions "4 Men" and "Animal Lost", choreographers Yossi and Oded continue their unique, artistic research and reveal a new political piece about the state of humanity. Black Fairytale asks: Who are we, where are we heading, and what do we dream about? In this manifesto for utopia, seven dancers navigate the balance between fragments of reality and the wonderland they create. Surrounded by marching soldiers, religious and political leaders, and searching individuals, the performers explore a scary yet beautiful world that nourishes love and hope. Black Fairytale offers a roller coaster ride between harsh and ecstatic moments, war and love, and dreams and illusions. Its onstage world is seductive, grotesque, dynamic, dramatic, and musical.
