The Web, is an outdoor performance, set among trees and rocks, combining three forms of art - Theater, Dance and Crochet. It tells the story of a devious, cunning lady spider who is weaving a giant web, waiting patiently for her prey. While she is busy wondering what will get tangled in her web, a curious little caterpillar approaches and playfully wonders around the spiderweb’s threads, which he mistakes for a big playground. Unfortunately, he falls into the spider’s trap and realizes he is about to become the spider’s next meal. What will be the fate of the caterpillar? Will he be able to save himself from the clutching hands of the lady spider and turn into a butterfly?
The piece was first performed in the International Puppet Theater Festival in Jerusalem, August 2016, as part of the “ZOOOOOOO” project, produced by Hadas Ofrat and Shachar Marom.
