The House By The Lake


The House By The Lake is a musical cabaret for actresses, dolls and objects. The show premiered in Israel’s accalimed Acco Festival for Alternative Theater, and enjoys a successful run in theaters in Israel. The show had its European premier in Paris’ Théâtre de la Cité Internationale in June 2012 and continued to tour Theater festivals across Europe.

From the depth of an unspeakable memory, through the gaze of a disenchanted cabaret singer, comes to life a story of three sisters during the holocaust. As darkness closes in on them, they struggle to maintain the
life they once knew, and escape into a strange game of make-believe. The show explores a world of stolen childhoods, life and family torn apart. But even in the face of the darkest of nightmares, the power of imagination and creation cannot be silenced. 

"An original and highly imaginative piece that succeeds in creating a delicate and beautiful theatrical world, which combines the humor and the terror of the situation" - Shai Bar Yaakov, Yediot Aharonot
