About the show

«freedom of SPEECHLESS» is a physical theater performance with no words that deals with one of man´s most basic rights-
the right of free speech.

The performance is a Swiss-Israeli co-production created by Mor Dovrat (IL, CH) and Yarden Gilboa (IL) in collaboration with Minako Seki (JP, DE) and Samuel Müller Dimitri (CH).

In the past years artists and journalists in Israel are facing
violations of their right to express themselves freely.

In this situation we find ourselves lost and helpless. We kept asking ourselves what can we do?
Our answer to this question is the creation of «freedom of SPEECHLESS».

We transpose our personal experience into a tragicomic movement performance. We believe that it is very important to bring this theme to public discussion, and our way of doing it is with our art.

Research and Inspiration

  • Our creative process starts from the body in the space.
  • We combine elements from dance, in particular from Butoh.
  • We work with absurdity and grotesque images
  • We are looking of the comic in the tragic and the tragic in the comic.
  • In a dadaistic manner, we will break the spoken language to the subatomic level- only to create a new level of coded communication.
  • When discussing freedom of speech, the choice to reduce the usage of spoken words gives another level to our work. In a place with no words at all, every sound has a huge impact. Every movement has an enormous weight. The ability to speak is not evident and for that we use the minimum required to give the maximum information.
