This Sunday, March 17, 2013 from 11 am – 1 pm, LABA Kids at the 14th Street Y presents Lost & Found in Israel, a puppet show developed by Israeli artists Zvi Sahar and Leat Klingman at the Theater at the 14th Street Y.
Families will learn about Israeli culture, and our expert puppeteers will teach them how to create shadow puppets they can use at home with a flashlight or table lamp, in the shapes of fruit like the puppets in the show.
“We made that show from all the things we love and miss in Israel – the land, the people, and of course – the food!” explained creators and performers Zvi Sahar and Leat Klingman.
Zvi Sahar is an Israeli born actor, director and puppeteer. He is also an alumnus of the LABA: House of Study at the 14th Street Y, where he developed an innovative piece of live puppet cinema, Salt of the Earth, which has received the Jim Henson 2013 Foundation Project Grant.
Leat Klingman is a puppeteer-filmmaker, artist and musician. Her new feature film, Wolfy’s Journey, is a puppet-musical feature film.
Join our puppets on a magical journey to Israel this Sunday, March 17th 11 am – 1 pm at the Theater at the 14th Street Y. Bring some of the magic home with you with your own shadow puppet and some Israeli chocolate!
