In 2008, the Tel-Aviv municipality sent four refrigerated trucks up north to the Hermon Mountain where they loaded 60 cubic meters of snow. The trucks then drove all night to make their way back, and at the crack of dawn, unloaded the icy cargo onto Tel-Aviv's city square, setting up a "white" surprise for its residents as a tribute to the winter Olympics in Torino. That same morning, the Dahan family, who resided in front of the square, were facing an eviction notice.
Snow follows the four drivers on their journey to the city, as well the struggle that Hanna, the matriarch of the Dahan family, faces when everything she and her family has is melting between their fingers.
Lazarov was born in 1974 in Tel-Aviv. He studied at Thelma Yelin Art School and served in a military entertainment ensemble. After his discharge he spent four years in the Ballet Bat-Sheva Dance Company - shows as “Anaphaza”, ”Kir”,“Zina” (choreographed by Ohad Naharin). In 2000 studied theatre at the Actors Center in London and joined the Gesher theatre and Cameri theatre in Israel as an actor, choreographer and director. Lazarov also designed the set in each of the plays he directed.
