I was Born in the ancient land of the Galilee in israel. A land full of ancient stories. Some of these stories carried a lot of weight, Stories of war, separation and the demonization of the other. My aim as a teacher, workshop leader and performer is to investigate how these stories can be transformed. Perhaps be used for the opposite, namely to challenge the place in us which categories the "other" and ourselves. Can the art of storytelling become more then just a form of entertainment? Can it raise fundamental questions such as "who am I?" And relate to current world affairs?
I graduated on 2008 from the School of Speech and Drama in Harduf, Israel and then continued for another two years to study at the School of Storytelling in Sussex, UK and completed my Actor training at the Actors Temple in London. In Israel, I used to work as a theatre director for Arab and Jewish young actors, using theatre as a bridge of communication. Since I moved to Europe I run storytelling workshops and performs all over the continent. Together with Sahand Sahebdivani and Farnoosh Farnia, we had established the “Mezrab Storytelling School”. A school that is striving to link the ancient art of storytelling with today’s burning questions.
