In "Land-Research", Arkadi Zeides creates on stage a space of exploration and observation, examining the complex relations between body and land. Against panoramic photos of broken scenery, five solo performers from different backgrounds go through individual processes of transformation. By examining reality through tasks of physical research, Zaides creates new mapping of the locale, tying together the personal and the political.

Believing that art is a tool for re-examining and changing reality, Zaides aspires to continue to expose the pressing issues in Israeli society. As in his previous works, local and international artists from various fields join him in his search for a mix of genres and languages blended together into a complex experience.
