My Dear Olive Tree

Let that fucking public prosecutor who had such a problem with bloggers writing about Israel print out this list and give it to the (yes, JEWISH) judge next time, maybe he will understand why bloggers write what they write about Israel. No one can watch the amount of docs I have seen in my life on the Israeli occupation of Palestine and continue to let Israel off the hook.

Another artist who has greatly influenced my views on Israel/Palestine is Smadar Yaaron, a female actor with the Acco Theatre group. I have seen her perform 3 times in Amsterdam. She was also one of the characters (the journalist) in the film _Lemon Tree_. She makes a kind of exhaustively physical theatre which I would describe as a mixture of the body art and the threatre sports aesthetics. I was very struck by her performances. To give you an idea:

Wish Upon A Star (excerpt)

Wish Upon A Star – English version in full

Besides Wish Upon A Star I have also seen her perform Anthology with her longtime collaborator Mony Yosef, another very intense performance:

Thisone I wish I had seen 🙂
