The Yellow Wind, by David Grossman
Twenty years after the Six-Day War, the weekly magazine “Koteret Rashit” (‘Headline’) initiated the thought-provoking documentary piece “The Yellow Wind”. This was the result of seven weeks of Grossman, an Arabic speaker, wandering around the West Bank visiting refugee camps, courts of law, settlements, towns, and villages, just before the outbreak of the first Intifada.
The testimonies from the West Bank have been documented for over 30 years ago, but when presented on stage today, it seems as though nothing has changed and they are still very much relevant.
The new stage version was premiered as part of the International Theatre Festival, Jaffa Fest, as a co-production of Jaffa Theatre and Tzavta Theatre in July 2019.
