Meital Dohan's Bath Party Extends at HERE, Oct. 22-Nov. 20

Bath Party, the one-woman off-off-Broadway show of Israeli film star Meital Dohan, has announced more performances. They will be on Saturday, October 22nd at 7 PM, October 22nd, 23rd, 28th and 29th at 7pm and November 11th, 12th, 19th and 20th at 7pm at HERE Arts Center (145 Avenue of the Americas between Spring and Broome).

Presented by Bathtub Productions, co-written by Dohan, Karen Shefler and Ayelet Dekel, and directed by Shefler (Blood Wedding at CSV and The Theatre of the Riverside Church),  the show is Dohan's "personal story of her long-distance infatuation with America. She's a star in her home country, but in America, she's just another immigrant in search of the American Dream. Nearly nude with a bath tub as her pulpit and a video screen, a Filipino manicurist and a gay Texan stage manager as her co-stars, the stunning Ms. Dohan dances, sings and waxes on about everything American from nationality and identity to the globalization of American culture. She draws parallels from her experience to that of immigrants universally. The show is a 21st Century compendium of pop-cultural ideas with an unrelenting beat and even a Charlie's Angels style action sequence."

Dohan has appeared in dozens of theater, television and movie productions. In Israel, Meital was a recipient of the America-Israel Fund Scholarships and the Cameri Scholarship for Young Actors. She received the Theatre Academy's Most Promising Actress Award for the year 2000. Her film credits include leading roles in Giraffes and God's Sandbox (winner of several international film festival awards and openiIng in America later this month), with both roles earning her the Israeli Oscar nomination. She is currently appearing on Israeli Television Channel 2's series Ugly Esti that was awarded the Golden Screen Award for 2003.

The remainder of Bath Party's artistic team consists of Ayelet Dekel (as Israeli footage video director as well as co-writer), Adolfo Doring (American footage video director), David Bernard Ambrose (video designer), Rich Benjamin PhD (consultant), Annie Nocenti (Dramaturg) and Timothy Haskell (fight choreographer).
