LABA Kids Presents Lost & Found in Israel, a Puppet Show for Young Children, at the 14th Street Y

Join our puppets on a magical journey to Israel and bring some of the magic home with you with your own shadow puppet and Israeli chocolate!

LABA Kids at the 14th Street Y presents Lost & Found in Israel, a puppet show developed by Israeli artists Zvi Sahar and Leat Klingman at the Theater at the 14th Street Y on Sunday, March 17, 2013 at 11am.

Lost & Found in Israel is a puppet show created by two Israeli puppeteers whose life in New York inspired them to write a humorous story about the journey of four brave puppets that set out to find their mother in a foreign country - Israel. On their way they meet new friends: a Tel Avivian watermelon, a Jerusalemite stone, a desert Cactus, an Orange and Falafel balls who help them in their search.

The charming tale appeals not only to the young, but also to the young at heart. Families will learn about Israeli culture, and our expert puppeteers will teach them how to create shadow puppets they can use at home with a flashlight or table lamp, in the shapes of fruit like the puppets in the show.

"We made that show from all the things we love and miss in Israel - the land, the people, and of course - the food!" explained creators and performers Zvi Sahar and Leat Klingman.

Zvi Sahar is an Israeli born actor, director and puppeteer. He is also an alumnus of the LABA: House of Study at the 14th Street Y, where he developed an innovative piece of live puppet cinema, Salt of the Earth, which has received the Jim Henson 2013 Foundation Project Grant.

Leat Klingman is a puppeteer-filmmaker, artist and musician. Her new feature film, Wolfy’s Journey, is a delightful puppet-musical feature film.
