About the project:

In the malaise of the Second Lebanon War in 2006, Benaya, a young IDF solider from the settlement of Karnei Shomron, tragically lost his life. Shortly after his heroic death, his grieving mother found his private diary which he had written while traveling abroad with his unit in Poland.

In this Shadow Dance performance, Benaya, a young boy named after the fallen hero, recreates Benaya’s travels across Poland and creatively depicts the insights that propelled Benaya to fight for his homeland onto the Second Lebanon War.
