January 15, 2019 – May 15, 2019

Rasooly’s theatrical language is based on a multidisciplinary approach, combining different forms of theatre, puppetry, visual art, and music. Her most recent work, Bon Voyage and Other Lies (2017), is based on short stories by Etgar Keret. She created a universe of paper cut-outs and object theater with Paper Cut, a production that has toured worldwide. The New York Times called it “one of those artfully quirky solo performances that make the New York International Fringe Festival worth checking out.” Her solo vocal presentation, The Gramophone Show, features classic songs from the 1920s to the 1940s.
