The play "My private ceremony" is based on the personal story of musician and actor Arik Livnat. Arik has never met his father, pilot Capt. late Arnon Livnat, who fell with his plane at El Arish on June 5, 1967, the first day, first hour of the Six Day War. Arik was born exactly one month later, on July 5.
The play was created during the process and ongoing joint work of Arik Livnat and director Yaqui Machraz. Mosaic materials and personal stories of Arik processed in the joint work of psychodrama improvisation and dramatic play written and directed by Yaqui Machraz.
The stage, the music and the time, allows Arik an extraordinary and moving meeting with his father and the family and personal story, which is also the story of Israel reality. The play takes place a few hours before Arik is going to a memorial ceremony on behalf of his father's squadron, but he decides to do a 'private ceremony' of his own, and to meet his father in a different way, closer and courageous, with pain and humor.
The play combines live music and authentic videos from the Six Day War.
