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.
