The work examines the ways in which brainwashing techniques are employed in order to oppress resistance among people; how social or physical systems manipulate us into blind obedience.  

Meeting Brian Wash was commissioned by the Performance Art Arena in Jerusalem, lead by the artistic direction of Doron Tavori. On stage, five performers alternatively assume the roles of a manipulating group and a manipulated individual. The performers subject each other to various experiments according to each person’s own pressure point. A totalitarian-like figure (played by Tavori) is projected on screen and monitors their every move.
