Like Father Likes Son

This work deals with the confrontation between fathers and sons. It is concerned with a son's search for identity and his inevitable clash with his father's authority, as in the archetypal, mythical examples from the sacrifice of Isaac to the Oedipus complex. It poses the questions - does one have to murder his father in order to realize his own destiny? Will he always be the victim of his own folly?

“Tomer Zirkilevich proved to be an excellent young artist, choreographer and dancer, combining the intelligence and depth of a real researcher with the imagination and artistic discipline which made his project ‘Like Father Likes Son’ an original, unique and touching experience.”

Gaby Aldor, artistic director of the Arab-Hebrew Theater in Jaffa, choreographer and dance critic

“15 minutes was enough to convince the audience to alternative scene with unusual skill of the Tomer Zirkilevich Group from Israel. During those few moments on stage amazing things happening which passed exceptionally and original story about the father's relationship with his son.”
