Kaleh Meydel


Jerusalem Design Week

Jerusalem Theater


‘Kalleh Meidel’ is the Yiddish term referring to a single girl who has reached the age when she deserves and required to find her match and get married by the religious community social conventions.


This performance based on a traditional religious ritual, when the decorative tablecloth seems as a covered bride before her marriage ceremony- while the figure underneath is fluttering red threads, stepping on golden eggs, breaking and smashing glass plates and juggling between religious magic and a sensual show. 

The performance is involving a defining texts out of the Kabbalic canon and an active dialogue between the artist and the audience, in Hebrew and Arabic alternately.
