The project deals with the Theme of languages and speech, as an instrument to communicate and deliver thoughts and feelings, but also as an instrument to reject the “other” language. As a political instrument mixed with manipulation that creates a lexicon that is pointed to the ultimate victim - but also as an action which floods the yearning to the simple and understood language, the forgotten language.
The context is the education system in school and the story is about a group of pupils and teachers, in the 60th+70th decades- after 67 War. Each one of them has his-her own narrative, but when they are called to assemble, they get the power of obedient mass.
The project is based on different forum of writing, including: prose and poem (Claudel, Abramowitch, Von Horvath), theory (Canetti, Chomsky, Boll, Adi Ophir), philosophy (Socrates) and new writing.
