Moti Brecher is an interdisciplinary artist who is interested in the ways in which social and political conflicts are expressed in people’s everyday conversations and conduct. He uses puppets that he designs to create performance pieces that are based on his own life experiences as well as political and historical events, mythical stories, and references to literature and cinema. In his work, Brecher explores the boundaries between theater, performance art, education, and entertainment. Brecher has performed in theaters, art spaces, and festivals, participated in several museum exhibitions, and initiated and directed community projects. He wrote satirical television sketches and played in the Israeli television series "Srugim" and "Stissel."
Brecher is a graduate of the Excellence Program in Teaching and Art Studies, with an emphasis on digital media in the HaKibbutzim College of Education and graduated with excellence in the Department of Visual Literacy (M.Ed.). His M.A. thesis "Puppets, Monsters and Education" focuses on the subversive use of puppets in the educational T.V. series Sesame Street. He teaches performance at the Thelma Yellin High School of Arts and teaches courses for educators on using performance as a teaching tool.
