Pigulim was created in the first initial residency program of Suzanne Dellal Center. The process traveled to Lucerne and was developed with the Tanz Luzerner Theater and premiered there as well.
Pigulim reveals stories within stories that rely on connections between the individuals in the show.
The main characters are suffering from unbearable loneliness and battling their way between life and death.
Each character is traveling through their materialistic being to their consciousness and holds a significant weight in each other’s worlds.
The stories show the essential humanity of the characters and relate to the issues of life, existence, and the quest for happiness.
In Pigulim, familiar objects symbolize misperceptions and reflect the misery of loneliness.
