Knock Knock - Niv Petel's compelling award winning solo show comes to London

How would you raise your child, if you knew that one day their turn will come to hold a rifle?

Using his body and voice, Niv Petel weaves a vivid and detailed familial relationship in KNOCK KNOCK, a physical solo show exploring the effects of National Service on a single mother and her only son in Israel.

KNOCK KNOCK is staged at the Tristan Bates Theatre, in the heart of London’s West End theatreland from January 15th – 27th.

Writer, Performer and Director, Niv Petel, draws from his own experiences to cut through the politics and tensions of Israel and the Middle East to bring a very human story to life, on stage.

Niv originally trained in Israel, at The Performing Arts Studio, founded by Yoram Loewenstein, Tel-Aviv. Niv worked in theatre, TV and voiceovers, and won the award for Best Actor in Theatre for Youth and Children, 2014, for his role in the one-man show Snowball. Since graduating from Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, London, in 2015, Niv’s credits in the UK include: NotMoses (Arts Theatre); Red Riding Hood (Hoxton Hall); La Strada (UK tour and West End season).

For KNOCK KNOCK, Niv brings together an experienced and talented team including Artistic advisor and Co-Director, Maia Levy, an Israeli actor and dramaturge, who trained at Beit Zvi School of Performing Arts. Maia is currently touring with two one-woman shows: The Longest Week In Moran’s Life, and Fish In The Net.  Set and Costume Design is by Rhiannon White who has previously designed for Walk the Plank and Liverpool Open Culture. Rhiannon runs the puppetry company Twitching Tales, that brings puppets to events across the country. Lighting Design is by Association of Lighting Designers award-winner Oliver Bush, who has worked around the country lighting aerial circus, musicals, dance and theatre.
