“For two years in the late 90s we worked from a tiny basement with no budget. But somehow, we managed to gather a small group of talented people from different countries with tremendously diverse artistic skills: a musician, a flamenco dancer, a computer programmer, the Israeli champion in archery, a hip hop artist, a reggae musician...together, we created the unique theatrical language of Mayumana,” recalls Eylon Nuphar, co-founder and one of the two creators of Mayumana, a Tel Aviv-based theater company. “Now, our troupe has nearly 100 artists from more than 30 different countries, and we have our own 400-seat theater. We’ve created five different shows --– all of which have toured internationally. We’re thrilled that the U.S. premiere of our latest production, Momentum, will be at The New Victory this December,” Ms.Nuphar said.
And get this: no two shows are alike! That’s because Momentum features breakthrough technologies that were developed especially for the show, including live 3D depth-sensing technology that recognizes people and responds to their movements and gestures.
