Train Theatre

The Train Theater was established in Jerusalem in 1981 as a collaboration of four independent puppeteers: Michael Schuster, Alina Ashbel, Hadass Ophrat and Mario Kotliar.

At first, the performances took place in a train wagon brought to the Koret Liberty Bell Park for that purpose. As the years passed the Train Theater became a creative and inspirational source of puppetry in Israel. The Train Theater productions are the result of the search for personal expression, mostly in small format, aiming for the highest level of stage and performance work. Although means were limited, the artists contributed to the enrichment of the theatrical language through their search to investigate and to renew. Many of the plays were created for children but they always included levels directed to the adults in the audience. Thus the artists refined their personal expression while breaking down the accepted limitations of the medium. The plays are beautiful and rich in visual artistry making use of puppets, objects, space and the element of surprise.

In time, the Train Theater expanded its fields of activity and established the International Festival of Puppet Theater, The School of Visual Theater and Habamah Theater, (now called Hazira Performance Art). These institutions are dedicated to interdisciplinary experimental work, as well as special projects for both the informal and formal educational system
