AGADA - Tel Aviv
AGADA (Legend) is derived from the Hebrew song “Agada Yapanit” (Japanese Fable), written by Ehud Manor and composed by Ariel Zilber in 1972. The song describes a pointless tragedy about blind ambition precipitating absurd and unnecessary violence, with an implication that this cycle is inevitable

About the Event
In AGADA, the song is utilized as the guiding thread of both the embodiment of each character, and the structure of the performance as a score, both playing between the mimesis of the song and its dismantling. The creation process unfolds as a dialogue between one body/imagination and others through interaction, reaction, and fantasy."The whole world is silent. The whole world is a wasteland."
