Festival: Mark your borders

Borders mean all sorts of things to all sorts of people in various cultural milieus. Take, for example, the British. Standing in line, say, at a supermarket checkout or at an ATM in the UK is a far more relaxing experience than in this beloved Mediterranean country of ours. The Brits know how to keep their distance – for good or bad. We Israelis, on the other hand, often tend to view demarcation lines as an invitation to explore what lies on the other side. Hence, borders become an important and often all too central element of political and sociopolitical life here. All of which makes Ofir Ben-Shimon and Merav Dagan’s play Zeh Kol Hazman Boreach Li (I Can’t Hold It) an intriguing venture in artistic and philosophical terms.
