Worst Case Scenario

Multidisciplinary Theatre

Out of Space /New Work to Premiere November 2019

Out of Space – Thoughts about space and distance
Four space investigators form a live archive of thoughts. On stage they paint a mosaic image of sad and funny poetic moments which attempt to map the spaces in their lives.  New circus, acrobatics and juggling are intertwined with true documented stories and contemporary performance.
Spaces and distances define us, bring us together, but can also separate us.
One woman, three men and dozens of objects are trying to redefine the stage and expand its limits. Also, one thought about the sea.
A show created in two different continents simultaneously, everything you see on stage actually happened.

The new piece by Namer Golan and Danielle Cohen Levy is the second chapter in a pseudo-scientific independent surprising circus trilogy continuing the first chapter “23 Thoughts About Conflict”.  Golan and Cohen Levy look for unexpected answers to questions which are clearly far too big.

23 Thoughts About Conflict

An expert juggler, an acrobat and dancer, a musician and inventor, and a brave woman warrior present an archive of 23 thoughts about conflict they collected in a period of one year. Each of them happened in reality. The work brings a unique point of view of personal and daily conflicts on various issues, meaningful or common, from the perspective of life In the Middle East.

This is the exactly the sort of show that the fringe should be about: open, engaging and thought-provoking. From the beginning we were transported effortlessly, unnoticeably and culturally to a place where we all shared the same experience.

This is international theatre at its best, really.

Chriss Cresswell, Fringe Review (May 2016)

The most brilliant aspect of this show is the genuine way these four artists chose to show their research in a witty mix of storytelling-theatre, movement, acrobatics and marvelous music. This way they succeed in transforming banal real events into poetic and humorist, absurd and liberating moments on stage.

Shay Bar-Yaacov, Yedioth Ahronot Daily Newspaper (October 2016)

WCS is a collaboration of four independent artists from various fields of arts, with a background in performance, circus and music. In their work, they portrait a complex image of reality through a poetic point of view, combining it with their virtuosic abilities in their unique disciplines.

With the right balance of elegance and humor, an absurd cascade of real facts, of conflicting situations from everyday life treated with panache by this talented and effective quartet…What a pleasure to see them seize the stage with force and pleasure!
