The Soft Hum of the Dial Tone
A portrait of a relationship by Ari Teperberg
A father and son meet on stage.
There, where the son feels at home and the father is a guest, they try to find a common language. Dance. Sing. Learn and teach one another.
For the duration of the show, they can (maybe, possibly) let go of traditional roles and behavioral patterns, and allow the stage to do what it does best – be a timeless territory, a poetic expanse, a testing ground.
Eli Teperberg is a real estate agent, a Jerusalem man through and through, an amateur trumpet player.
Ari Teperberg is a maker, director, dancer and ex-violin player.
