Natives is an installation based performance, designed to examine the theatrical limits and connections between theatre and real life.
Based on testimonies from women working in the sex-industry, it was performed in a busy street in Tel-Aviv (known for its many brothels) by a group of five musicians and three dancers. It uses the street as the theatrical stage and sets the performers within the natural street movement, while the audience sits in a unique viewing device.
