SEVEN – site specific performance art @ Central Bus Station –
Mystorin Theatre’s brand new physucal theatre show, specifically designed for the 7 levels of the Central Bus Station. Guaranteed to be an immersive and strange experience.
Tickets are 80NIS and can be found here.
SEVEN is the new artistic achievement of the Mystorin Theatre Group. Continuing the company’s journey in the urban landscapes of the Tel-Aviv New Central Bus Station, SEVEN poetically intertwines with the terminal’s vivid daily activity. It becomes part of the station and turns it into a theatrical world of fantasy, shared by performers, audience and passersby. Along with the audience, the show travels the seven floors of the station’s giant structure, from the busy platforms, through the hectic shopping avenues to the covert underground urban-labyrinths, secretly hidden three floors under street level. SEVEN is a first of its kind site-specific interpretation of an assortment of mystical texts, all linked by the number 7 and the contemplation of the afterlife: Dante’s ‘Divine Comedy’, the ‘Seven Skies’ in the Book of Zohar, the New Testament’s Seven Deadly Sins and more. A diverse
language of styles and techniques of performance such
as areal acrobatics, acapella singing, movement and visual theatre turns SEVEN into an all-round immersive celebration of colour, texture, sound, movement and emotion.

There will be music and stuff after. Free.
