Israel’s leading podcast blends live storytelling and surprising multimedia, introducing us to a different Israel, one that we rarely get a chance to see: life-sized, nuanced, funny and touching. These are everyday stories, told by, and about, regular Israelis.
Everywhere we turn these days it seems "the wall" is staring back at us. Its power is magical - it both protects and alienates; keeps people in and out; and can - we have all seen - even bring mighty governments to a standstill. Israel, too, has its share of walls. There's the West Bank Barrier, of course, the Wailing Wall, and basically everything in between. In their newest live show, Israel Story - the country's leading podcast - interact with different walls and have surprisingly poetic tales to tell about their encounters. With their usual mix of unusually splendid storytelling, marvelous live music and stunning visuals, join the Israel Story team for an evening that will redefine your thoughts about the good ol' "W-word."
