What is your job on this show?
What type of theater do you like most to work on?
Interactive theater, where the illusion of the stage and the truth of the audience get mixed, and your'e not really sure anymore wether it is real or not. Always enjotable, though :)
Why did you want to be part of FringeNYC?
Coming from Israel, having the enjoyment of meeting other audiences and artists is always great fun. Plus, Dave, the character in "Honest", is a real social beast who likes to move from one metropolin to the other. So, we had to listen to him!
In your own words, what do you think this show is about? What will audiences take away with them after seeing it?
Do you know these people that sit next to you in a bar, drink a little to much by themselves and start blabbing their life-story, and you find out it's actually fascinating? "Honest" is exactly that - the lonesome social service crusader who's fed up with the system, but actually questions his own choices. Every adult who ever had to meet (or work with) the govermental sector will identify with Dave; Every person who ever felt something towards the global protest movement will be able to take this as food for thought; and everyone who likes to sit in a bar with friends and drink - will enjoy the show all the way into the night.
Which “S” word best describes your show: SMOOTH, SEXY, SMART, SURPRISING?
I can tell you which "S" word doesn't describe our show - SOBER!
Theatre is a necessary ingredient in democratic societies. Do you agree or disagree, and why?
Theater is a live reflection. As long as there are masks in life, the thaeter is needed. Democratic systems is still a large, mostly faceless, mechanisms. So the Theater gives an escape, a place where the mask exposes the truth.
