Three figures run in a circle, struggling to continue as they spiral into the depths of Israeli consciousness. As their journey becomes harder and more painful, their stories break down, revealing the wounds of contemporary Israeli society.
Combining dance, text, theatre, and gruelling physicality, Marathon uses the autobiographical stories of three performers to reflect a state of constant emergency. It is an exciting, visceral work that depicts the desperate need to hold onto ideas and ideals in an impossibly unstable world. Who will survive? And how?
Following its Toronto dates, Marathon will tour to Public Energy (Peterborough), Undercurrents festival (Ottawa), and the Chutzpah! Festival (Vancouver).
This is Marathon’s North American premiere.
