Nataly Zukerman | The Other Body

Winner of the 2014 Best Performer Award at Israel’s Fringe Awards.

A performance piece in three parts: Part 1: “Hi, my name is Nataly Zukerman. When I was 12, in 1990, I had an accident, not a car accident, a pretty stupid accident, an accident at the Girl Scouts.” After a difficult accident at the age of 12, one that left her paralyzed, after a successful rehabilitation that turned her into a heroine who wins against all odds, after a fairy tale love affair gone awry, after countless scars left by momentary lovers, comes the question – now what?   Part 2: “I know a man who made himself an ideal woman out of his desires” (poem number 5 from Yehuda Amichai’s “The Language of Love and Tea with Roasted Almonds”). A “revenge list” made of countless scars left on her body by more or less momentary lovers.   Part 3: “Wanted - for an art project: male/single, looking for a relationship. No prior theatrical experience required.” A short TO DO list on the way to finding love. Personal stories that otherwise might not have interested anyone, get an unexpected turn when facing an audience.
