Three characters coexist alongside one another, while each is bound in a closed, protected world of his own. Nonetheless, the encounter between them is inevitable. As the boundaries separating the characters are crossed, their personal baggage falls apart and becomes exposed. Ship of Fools is a stage work which uses movement and text, to examine the fragile encounter between the human need to protect one’s distinctiveness from destruction or alteration and his yearning for interpersonal contact, for understanding and for acceptance of his internal world by the other.

The inspiration for the work is Sebastian Brant’s poem Ship of Fools (1494), that tells of a group of fools that had been extradited from the city onto a ship sailing towards the fools’ heaven.

Sheinfeld and Laor are stage artists that have been creating contemporary dance works together since 2004. Their works combine elements from dance, performance and theatre, and were presented on platforms such as Tanz Im August (Berlin), Montpellier Dance Festival , The Place (London), Julidans Festival (Amsterdam), Noorderzon (Groningen), Budapest Autumn Festival, Mousonturm (Frankfurt), Cena Contemporanea (Brasilia), Pumpenhaus theatre (Munster), and others.
