Goodbye to Israel

Yesterday I had the priviledge of visiting the School of Visual Theatre in Jerusalem and my old friend, Hadas Ophrat, founder and its first director(1986-1992) and co-founder of the Train Theatre in Jerusalem. The school is dedicated to developing the talent of young Israeli puppeteers and visual theatre practitioners. I witnessed them sculpting, creating stop-frame animation, puppet design and development and the like, which was a true inspiration!

In the photo, I am with Dalia Yaffe-Maayan, manager of the Train Theatre, at the Holon lecture last week. There's a full report on my activities over the past two weeks in Israel, for those who can read the lingo.... Click here!
