A local troupe brings absurd theater to Shenzhen
Founded in 1990 by Roni Kenan, Hai-Po is a community theater that staged many plays over the years. Its latest endeavor is Samuel Becket's "one-mouth" play, Not I, from 1972.
Daphna Kohane, who acts in the play, was a member of Hai-Po (sounds like "Haifa"; literal meaning "living here") for fourteen years before going solo with the monodrama Victoria, based on Sami Michael's novel. Then, after touring with the show for nearly five years, "I felt I had to do some ensemble work; I had to have people around me on stage." Three years ago, she returned to be active in Hai-Po.
