For thousands of years, human beings have told stories to each other. In all cultures, eras and areas of the globe, the art of story telling holds an important place in society. Whether through song, dance, music or writing, a good tale draws an audience. This week at the Suzanne Dellal Center, seven incredible women will impart their wisdom and humor in Gila. Directed by Galit Liss, Gila is a multi-media production celebrating said story-telling tradition. Gila refers to the spirit of those who choose to dance their lives at every moment. In it, women between the ages of seventy and eighty-five take the intimate stage at Yaron Yerushalmi Hall. The cast is comprised of professional actresses as well as women who have only recently discovered their curiosity and desire to impart their remarkable stories to others. The show includes video, theater, music and humor. Yair Vardi described this unique event as, "...a moving evening, so real and honest. The creation engulfed me in warmth and serenity from the first moment." Liss, who also created the show, developed Gila as a search of "a beautiful aging." Beyond that, it's an exploration of choice and how we choose to live. Each one of these unique women breathes life into this performance by bringing their own energy to the stage. Their laughter, pain, sadness and silliness are exposed delicately and with grace. An unusual and moving piece, Gila offers audiences a chance to take a break from the unitards and abstract music of Suzanne Dellal's typical programming and experience a performance of an entirely different nature. Tickets are NIS 85 for the show on Wed., Sept. 24 at 20:30. More info may be had at or (03) 510-5656
