AGADA is derived from the Hebrew song Agada Yapanit (Japanese Fable), written by Ehud Manor and composed by Ariel Zilber in 1972. The song describes a pointless tragedy about blind ambition precipitating absurd and unnecessary violence, with an implication that this cycle is inevitable. 

Working with materials drawn from improvisation practice, the creation process unfolds as a dialogue between one body/imagination and others through interaction, reaction, and fantasy. 

In AGADA, the song is utilized as the guiding thread of both the embodiment of each character, and the structure of the performance as a score, both playing between the mimesis of the song and its dismantling. AGADA emerged as an appeal to empathy: the physiological ability to feel like another, and to make a collective shift.
