It may seem like a contradiction to celebrate International Women’s Day watching a religious man, one who does not observe women dancing, perform a solo to the national anthem. However, this year, as part of the Zikit Theater’s celebrations of the event, that is exactly what will happen. On Monday evening, Oren Tishler will participate in Ruth Sigalis’s Shira Be’tzibur – Israeli Cabaret.
Tishler, 38, has been performing in Sigalis’s show for more than two years. When he began the creative process, the veteran dancer had yet to be married, to become a father of two and to give up watching women on stage. This production, which has been performed for the past few years, has accompanied Tishler through the most meaningful and uproarious time in his life.
