On May 8, 2012, third-year students from Yoram Loewenstein’s Performing Arts Studio spent the evening at a fancy Tel Aviv restaurant. It was a good-bye party of sorts. They were well aware of the fact that the next morning at 8:30, their fellow student, Chen Barel, who was lying in the hospital unconscious and intubated, would be disconnected from the machines that were keeping her heart beating.“The show must go on” might be one of the most overused clichés, but for the 21 Loewenstein students, these are the words they’ve been repeating in an effort to overcome the intense trauma they all suffered. Together they’re trying to understand how this event has affected their lives.
