Launch­ing the 2017 Voices Fes­ti­val mark­ing 50 years of The Oc­cu­pa­tion, the Israeli play­wright Gi­lad Evron’s po­etic and poignant play re­counts the fall­out when an Israeli-Arab ex­teacher, nick­named Ulysses, at­tempts to sail into Gaza on a raft made of plas­tic bot­tles, bear­ing with him a cargo of Dos­toyevksy’s Crime and

Pun­ish­ment. Paired with a suc­cess­ful Israeli-Jewish at­tor­ney who takes his case pro bono, Ulysses on Bot­tles is a tale of two worlds col­lid­ing over Gaza, in which the pro­found im­pli­ca­tion of priv­i­lege and ac­cess in one of the hot­beds of the world in­ter­sect with sur­pris­ing sym­pa­thy and hu­mor. This cap­ti­vat­ing story is “an al­le­gory on the def­i­ni­tion of free­dom—what it means, what it en­tails and what it de­mands” (The Jerusalem Post). Win­ner of Is­rael Theater Prize’s Best Orig­i­nal Play in 2012.
