Mirror


Premiered at the Haramat Massakh Festival in 2007


The starting point of Mirror is the well known theory developed by the psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan, which is called "the Mirror Stage". According to this theory, "the Mirror Stage" represents a significant moment in the development of the child, between the ages of nine and eighteen months. During this period, the child completes a process at the end of which he looks in a mirror, identifies his image and understands that he is the image in the mirror who is looking at himself. Re'i (Mirror) portrays several figures: a man hanging upside-down, suspended from a mirror, a customer in a café and a waitress. The man suspended from the mirror can’t move away from it; he debates with it, tries to overcome it, but stays tied to it. Opposite him, there is a customer who sees his waitress as a mother, lover and sister. The waitress, meanwhile, is just looking for a tip. All the figures are reflected in a gigantic mirror placed on the stage, and finally the mirror is placed in front of us, the audience.
