Industry: Theatre

When one hears the term 'startup' these days, they most often associate it with the inner workings of the business industry. As more companies involved in the rapidly growing hightech field continue to provide us with new apps and services, many of which are pouring out of Israel, a.k.a. 'Startup Nation,' the latest craze in Israeli startup ventures is catching on, one which isn't hightech at all.

Welcome to the world of Tziporela.


(Members of Tziporela)

Tziporela, an award-winning nine-member theatre troupe, has been making headlines across Israel with their new international show, Tziporela Worldwide, their first venture into English-speaking waters. With a vision of becoming an international theatre label, Tziporela surpasses the boundaries of innovation and creativity, boldly bringing life back to the theatre, and rekindling our desires to laugh and be entertained.

The new show 'weaves together movement, music and slapstick,' bringing forth the best of satire, comedy, drama and choreography into one jam-packed routine that flows from one theatrical sketch to the next, and has captured the attention of Hebrew and English speakers alike.
