Hummus, Chips & Salad
Theatre, dance and Hummus
Screenplay: Abigail Rubin & Yoav Bartel
Premiered: 2008, Akko Festival
Duration: 60 minutes
A theatre-dance play that takes place in a Hummus restaurant during the International Fringe Theatre Festival in 2008. As part of the play, the team of 'waiters' provide each audience member with a portion of Hummus, while dancing to everyday moves, all until... The directors of the play "Training the Unruly members of the Sector" enter the restaurant, to snatch chickpeas and resolve the conflict between the directors and cast. In no time, the waiters begin fighting with the directors and vice versa, and the audience is fighting its gut feeling that refuses to accept the Israeli-Arab reality as it expresses itself in the restaurant.
