A man and a woman are drawn together and become entangled in the life cycle of an ageless organism. Identity becomes an illusion as they struggle to assemble the loose fragments of wrecked lives. Written, produced and directed by Shane Carruth, Upstream Color is about two people whose lives and behavior are affected by a complex parasite that has a three-stage life cycle in which it passes from humans to pigs to orchids.


Le vin in English

Fans of late iconic Israeli playwright Hanoch Levin will have an opportunity to enjoy one of his trademark works, Yakish & Poopche, at the Gesher Theater in Jaffa, on Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. The new production is directed by Yevgeny Aryeh and has English subtitles. The performance will be followed by a conversation with Gesher general director Lena Kreindlin and drinks with the actors. The darkly comic play is based on the story of the two lonely eponymous characters who are desperate to find a partner – but this proves to be a lost cause. As a last resort they marry each other, but consummating the union also proves to be a challenge.

For tickets and more information: (03) 515-7000 and www.gesher-theatre.co.il
