A lonely secretary remains in the office after everyone else has gone home. From her little corner, using photos from old film magazines, she escapes into a world of daydreams. There she is a glamorous movie star from the 1940s and finds her ideal love at last. But as the story unravels, as imagination and reality collide, her romantic tale becomes a Hitchcockian nightmare!
This one-woman show reveals the obsessions and dangers of romantic fantasies. The language of black and white is transformed to the ‘low-tech’ universe of paper cut-outs and object theatre, creating a tension that is absurd, painful and humorous.
Director, actor, singer, and puppeteer was trained primarily as a classical singer and went on to study theatre design in London. She began developing her unique theatrical language at the School of Visual Theatre in Jerusalem, where she specialized in directing, puppetry and design, and graduated with excellence.
Since 2006, Yael has been creating independent theatre works and performs at leading international festivals throughout Europe, the United States, South America and the Far East. Alongside theatre, she is currently performing with several musical ensembles as well as solo shows, with music that draws inspiration and focuses on the beginning of the 20th century Swing, Blues, Jazz and French Chansons.
Yael’s theatrical language is based on a multidisciplinary approach, combining different forms of theatre, puppetry, visual art and music.
