Bucket List

by Yael Ronen & Shlomi Shaban
Director: Yael Ronen

World Premiere

A man wakes up on a Saturday morning, and the world around him has changed beyond recognition. His reality is shattered. What he believed to know has completely disintegrated. Nothing is what it used to be. 

In his despair, he turns to a shady start-up that is developing cutting-edge technology. It allows the patient to choose what to remember: »Zeitgeist« addresses the global market for PTSD treatment with a unique procedure that alters and erases the traumatic memory itself. But until the amenities of a trauma-free present can be enjoyed, some phantom memories might haunt the patient's thoughts - a strange collage of broken plots. 

»Bucket List« is a musical hallucination about an overwhelming reality. Songwriter Shlomi Shaban and director Yael Ronen, along with the ensemble and a three-piece band, use music to penetrate abysses that our bodies may remember better than our forgetful brains.
