When deep in shit, poetry is revealed and when the stench is so present - it becomes a fragrance in her Fantasy Cabaret." (House of International Theatre). Scrambled premiered at Teatronetto Theatre Festival in 2019, and performed at Stockholm Fringe Festival in 2020, and at the 2020 International Exposure of Israeli Theatre..
