Man of Steel from Katzenelson Street
Based on “Our Holocaust” by Amir Gutfreund.
A one-man show, participated at the “Theatronetto” Festival 2007.
Late 1970’s in Israel. Big things are happening. Operation Entebbe, The peace agreement with Egypt, Tal Brody’s “We are on the Map!” and Izhar Cohen’s “A-ba-ni-bi”. But alongside those magnificent stories, in the Katzenelson neighbourhood in Kiryat Haim, some dark and terrible stories permeate. Stories from “back there”. Amir, a 13 year-old boy, is “not yet old enough” to hear these stories, to know what happened to his neighbours and relatives “back there”, in the war.
