Pupik

Pavilion Theatre, Marine Parade, Worthing

After a premiere and tour in Brazil, this is a new English adaptation of Pupik, a multi-layered visual and physical two-woman dance show, created and performed by Yael Karavan and Naomi Silman from award-winning companies Lume Teatro, Brazil and Karavan Ensemble, UK. Pupik – (“navel” in Hebrew) – is the story of an encounter between two women, descendants of generations of immigrants who have always been foreigners in another land. Together they tackle vital contemporary questions such as identity, roots, displacement, borders, and the concept of a Home. They travel through time and space, unveiling the layers of their personal stories and ancestral backgrounds, tracing a line from the personal to the universal.
