A science-fiction performance provides a new and different view of the way we understand the past and imagine the future.
‘Worlds – a Canaan-futuristic song cycle’ is a performance of images and thoughts, looking anew at the past and reimagining a future: a levantine, middle-eastern, mediterranean, sweaty, radical, feminist, transgressive, poetic, refusing closure, non-western, non-jewish, non-holy, fresh, understanding history, looking at archeology, engaging with technology, fragmented, embodied, hopeful, angry, sci-fi, punk, pop, Israeli future[s].
