Congratulations Robert!

The Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre Conducted a 2-week workshop of 
our Golem project at the Bytom festival in 1996 and performed the result 
together with excerpts from our Rusalka, the Little Rivermaid.  Below find some info 
from the program of our 1996 participation in the festival.  

"Poetry in the interaction of Dancers and objects." gushed Giora Manor in his 
review  for Israel Dance Quarterly.  Posting the whole article here would be 
a good contribution to the criticism discussion, but modesty prevents me from 
copying the whole thing verbatim in this space (or is it perhaps laziness?).
