"I Am Sisyphus" is an independent theater production that combines three short plays dealing with the individual’s place in the capitalist, destructive modern world.
The first play is Harold Pinter’s “One for the Road”. The play depicts the interrogation of a father, a mother and their little boy by an immensely amicable detective who tries to figure out what they committed the heinous crime they know nothing about.
The second play is Sławomir Mrożek’s “At Sea”, where three men, deserted on a raft at sea, with no food, try to decide democratically which of them ought to be eaten by the others.
The third play is “The Field after the Battle” by Daniel Botzer (because giving a chance to young Israeli writers is cool), in which two soldiers on both sides of the war wake up on top of their own dead bodies, and try to understand why and for what they lost their lives and gave up their families and children.
The three plays intertwine throughout the show, with the help of video art and movement, creating a fascinating, harsh narrative on our place in a world where decision makers erase the individual’s identity while ignoring the little man pushing their rock of decisions slowly up the mountain.
