There were 38 performers in zentai walked on the Bat Yam International Street Art Festival platform for more than 1 hour. There were many interactions with the public audiences and also amongst each other. There was some performance art element as well as a lot of body movements like dancing with audience or performing copula movement.
The zentai performers amuse audiences and they were very reactive and engaging to the performances. Children are the most curious audience; they approached in curiosity and asked questions, danced with performer and engaged in the art.
There were a lot of picture taken by the public and also by the local medias.
Israeli artist- He was inspired by the idea of non-identity that zentai brings. He will have his next project in zentai. His next project idea is about explaining the other people’s art work in his own understanding in zentai in order to give freedom of understanding and non-identity of the art works.
Israeli resident (Yemen descendant)- She joined this project in order to express her concern about the racism in Israel. Africans are discriminated in the Israeli society and she wanted to express this concern in the gentle way instead of hash protesting. She wanted to wear zentai and show that people can be colourful upon their personality and not by the look. Zentai covers the skin of the parson and nutorizes the ethnicity yet it creates colourful celebration to the community. The zentai celebrates the differences of the people instead of anger and conflict from the differences.
Israeli teacher- She finds zentai a very promising art form to various expressions that could be possible by hiding the identity. It projects and questions the Israeli society at same time, it questions the bigger question ‘Who we are’ as an individual. Zentai helps to discover our self deeply by being able to be aware of us and it leads to the outer expression and communication to the public.
