Driven by a deep love for percussion and music, founders Elyon Nuphar and Boaz Berman created Mayumana in 1996, drawing gifted performers from around the world. Their diverse talents, contrasting backgrounds and superlative technique live out the company’s name, which is derived from the Hebrew word for skill. The performers’ creativity is sparked by a shared passion for rhythm and movement, fueled by a unique sense of humor and playful mischief.
“Currents” was inspired by the historical Battle of Currents between Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla on their quest to find energy sources for the world. Drawing on specially-designed musical instruments, video projections, lights and visual effects, two troops represent the essence of light and electricity, expressed in different esthetic and artistic approaches. Together they bring to the stage an energy that is both inexhaustible and infectious, engaging audiences of all ages in this spectacular show.
Audience members will be taken on a journey between two troops, each representing a different view of the essence of light and electricity and each inspired by a different esthetic and artistic approach, all of which are presented as a dialogue, through unique sounds, lights, and visual effects.
The show combines a variety of elements: specially made musical instruments, massive video art projections including video mapping on the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem and eleven skilled performers in constant movement, playing on different instruments and musically juggling between different sounds.
With performers from more than 20 different nationalities, Mayumana has become one of Israel’s leading cultural exports. It has entertained millions of people around the world with its international touring cast, as well as in its home theatre, The Mayumana House, which is located at the old harbor of Jaffa.
