THE HOUSE BY THE LAKE - creation 2012

A musical cabaret for 3 actresses, dolls and objects 

By Yael Rasooly and Yaara Goldring - 1h - big stage

Representation in English, German, French and Hebrew


THE HOUSE BY THE LAKE is a performance that swings between the boundaries of musical cabaret and contemporary puppetry for adults.

A cabaret singer, haunted by her unspeakable memories, tells the story of three sisters. Forced to hide in a tiny cold room, waiting for their mother to return, the sisters do their best to preserve a shadow of the life they once knew. While reality is falling apart, their bodies come together with pieces of broken dolls, creating a fantastic and absurd world.

In this original and creative play, humor and tragedy are woven together, forming an overwhelming theatrical experience.
