Based on the novel "Candide " by Voltaire. For 2 actresses/puppeteers and junk puppets.
Concept, design, construction of puppets and scenery, text and performance: Patricia O'Donovan and Louise Blankvoort.
Created in 1988 in the framework of our studies in the School for Visual Theater in Jerusalem.
Louise and I built the puppets from junk we found in the street. The scenery was a group of 5 big water tank metal lids suspended by elastic ropes from the roof. They changed function, becoming sometimes our armor, others a castle window or a boat.
The show premiered at the very first Finale of the newly founded SVT in 1986 at the Kahn Theater in Jerusalem.
