(dis)Place[d] by foolsFURY (2018 Fury Factory Festival)
In (dis)Place[d], foolsFURY co-artistic director Debórah Eliezer cracks open the assumptions of her own identity through the story of her father, Edward Ben-Eliezer, an Iraqi Jew born in 1930, a member of the Zionist underground, a refugee, an Israeli spy, and an immigrant to America. The story follows the little-known history and tenuous position of Arab Jews in Baghdad in the years leading up to, during and following World War II. The powerhouse solo performance combines story, movement, music, song, recordings and segments of Edward Ben-Eliezers 2007 video interview with the National Holocaust Organization. Eliezer creates several different characters, including her father at three different ages, her great grandmother, their Iraqi neighbors, historical figures and The Land itself.
The mission of foolsFURY Theater Company is to revitalize the American theater by creating ground-breaking visceral performances that inspire audiences and artists to reconsider and reconnect with the world around them, emphasizing qualities of the theater that can only be experienced live, and advancing artistic dialogue through training, research and presentation.
