Harmony – even if we have to fake a lifetime to achieve it.
Who is this woman anyway, who has Popeye's back day after day so he can focus on his great adventures without a care in the world? In Sivan Ben Yishai's work, Olivia is a smart and successful writer who just takes a back seat so that her glamour doesn't overshadow the insignificance of her boyfriend in disguise.
In LOVE / AN ARGUMENTATIVE EXERCISE, Olivia steps out of the shadows of unimportant supporting characters and self-critically analyzes and dissects her relationship with her beautiful Sailor Boy. With powerful language and wit, she questions the ambivalence between feminist self-portrayal and the role of women in relationships. For how can being a couple work out without giving up oneself?
