Bright Invention is excited to announce their new form, created in partnership with The Klein Active Adult Center and The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia. It combines storytelling and improvisation - two things Bright Invention does really well! - to dramatize existing written work.

Our debut version of this new form is called Real Life Israel. It uses the Israeli radio program Israel Story as the source for the stories we will bring to life. Israel Story is the creation of Mishy Harmon, Roee Gilron, Yochai Maital, and Shai Satron. It's often described stateside as the Israeli version of the hit NPR radio program This American Life. But Mishy and his friends describe it this way:

"Israel Story, or Sipur Israeli, is a new radio initiative aimed at introducing high quality, long-form non-fiction content to, and about, Israel . . . . Our primary goal is to tell the story of a different, diverse Israel: To amplify voices that are rarely heard on the mainstream media, to showcase and celebrate the plurality of local communities and traditions."

On Sunday night April 26th, White Pines will celebrate Israel's Independence Day (April 23) by presenting two episodes of Real Life Israel: "Bees In The Service of the I.D.F.", and "Most Beautiful Book Ever Written." Featuring Bright Invention favorites Kevin Chick, Katherine Perry, and Benjamin Lloyd, and directed by Bright Invention Artistic director Jennifer MacMillan, each form will run about 30 minutes, and include a dramatic reading of an Israel Story episode, improvisations based on the episode, and written audience suggestions.
