Karavan Ensemble presents PUPIK – a contemporary tale in search of identity

What defines our identity? How do we belong? Where we really come from?

Created and performed by Yael Karavan and Naomi Silman, a co-production between award winning companies, LUME Teatro, Brazil and The Karavan Ensemble, Brighton, UK.

Pupik – (“navel”) is the story of an encounter between two women, descendants of generations of immigrants who have always been foreigners in another land. Together they tackle vital contemporary questions such as identity, roots, displacement, borders, and the concept of a Home. They travel through time and space, unveiling the layers of their personal stories and ancestral backgrounds, tracing a line from the personal to the universal. Pupik looks to unearth what connects us despite our differences.

“A clever, funny and moving exploration of motherland, heritage and the notion of ‘foreign-ness’, delivered in a variety of physical, visual and verbal languages” Dorothy Max Prior – Total Theatre Magazine
