Debut award in The IPF Golden Dolphin Festival, Varna, Bulgaria 2014 and “Award of

Excellence” from “Puppets for Peace and Intercultural Dialogue Festival”, Yerevan,

Through old books, recycled bindings and yellowing pages a story is told about a boy

and a tree, about childhood and adolescence, about green fields that are lost

between grey concrete and about one green bud of hope.

Inspired by “The Giving Tree” (Shel Silverstein) and by “The Lorax” (Dr. Seuss.)

“A rare opportunity to see such a magnificent, well-balanced, heart-warming,

meaningful and professionally rendered performance for little children.” (Mr. Janos

Novak, President of AssiteJ Hungary)

“When All Was Green is a play without words but with a lot of sensitivity and soul

that succeeds in touching the hearts of the young ones and adults as well.

(Shai Bar-Ya’akov, Yediot Akhronot Newspaper)

Visual Concept

Walking in the streets of Tel Aviv, looking at trees, finding abandoned old books

waiting for someone to take them home, we found a strong equivalent between

trees and books. Therefore, after collecting almost 100 old books, instead of being

thrown to the garbage, we recycled them into a set, objects and puppets. There was

no intention to hide the texture, thus printed words, in different languages can be

seen all over the visuals of the show

“When All Was Green” connects with numerous roots between ecology and co-

existence. It was performed in front of children from different cultures and

nationalities and they all responded the same. Without words, through ecological

representation, they realize the immense damage we are causing to each other by

our own hands. They watch the tree being cut off, the delicate balance between

mankind and nature being broken and they realize that it’s equivalent to the balance

between friends, countries, and sectors in society. Because it is a play without words

it allows every spectator to tell himself his own story, what’s close to his heart.

“When All Was Green” was premiered at The International Puppet Festival,

Holon, Israel July 2012 and participated festivals in Turkey, Hungary,

Senegal, Korea, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Armenia. Next tours for 2015 : Expo

Milano, Taiwan, Slovenia, Japan, Kosovo, Norway and Poland.
