Cameri Theatre - Shaul HaMelech Boulevard 19, Tel Aviv,
An intriguing and unexpected encounter between two ostensibly opposing extremes. One is a musician and creator, born in the old north of Tel Aviv. His songs have accompanied us since the days of the Roxane, through the electronic revolution that he created in the late 1990s until today. The anthems like “My Love”, “New Love” and “15 Minutes” are etched in the heart of Israeli rock. His father, Benny Amdursky, was born in 1931 in Jerusalem, one of the pillars of Hebrew song, the fifth generation in Israel. Singer, producer and restaurateur. He died in 1994.
The second is a poet, born in Shikun Sela in Hadera. One of the most prominent voices in the new and battered East. His break into the world of poetry shook, angered, and revived the sleepy literary scene. His poems, among them “The State of Ashkenaz,” “All the Ears will Come,” and his books “The Dogs Who Barked in Our Childhood were Blocked” and “Aryan Gold” depict a personal and collective reality that gives them a mouth and presence. His father, Aharon Hassan, was born in 1956 in the Agrovank transit camp in Hadera. Anniversaries of the Alliance factory, retired jade. Today he works in the supermarket in Givat Olga.
Roy Hassan and Assaf Amdursky meet to fall in love with each other’s songs, sing, play and read from their work. A meeting of anger and love, healing words and healing sounds, a work that glorifies the different and the common.
