Jack and the Beanstalk
a performance and workshop commissioned and initiated by the Train Theater, Jerusalem.
I animated the story of Jack in view of the video camera, using charcoal drawing, etchings, and manipulating paper, with the addition of sound. In the first phase, the “puppets” were projected in real time onto a large screen. The use of a popular familiar story enabled the participants to enjoy the art and get familiar with the technique instead of being occupied with the plot.
Then the audience split up into groups. The participants in each group brought up ideas and cooperated to select a narrative and images to present it. Then presented the narrative they created to the rest of the groups via the camera and the projector. This was a lively and rewarding workshop from which everyone left with a smile
