About the Event
What happens when two people with the same obscure name meet?
ORI FLOMIN and ORI LENKINSKI's paths crossed many times before they actually met. Usually, this entailed
someone who knew them both asking if they knew each other. How could they not? They are both
While Ori Flomin was born in Israel and immigrated to New York City, Ori Lenkinski spent her formative
years in Brooklyn before relocating to Tel Aviv.
In 2019, Flomin arrived in Israel to perform at the Suzanne Dellal Center. The two Oris met over donuts,
which are also O shaped, for an article Lenkinski was writing about Flomin’s show and a friendship
Last summer, the two took their relationship to the next level- a shared evening at Tmuna Theater in Tel
Aviv. The event was such a success that they decided to bring it to New York City.
On April 13 and 14, Ori and Ori will present Urban Crawler (Flomin) and The Suit (Lenkinski) at
Manhattan’s Arts on Site.

On Valentine's Day, 1962, Jackie Kennedy invited television cameras into the White House to what
would become an iconic tour of the extensive renovation she championed. In doing so, she reshaped the
world's image of the First Lady and of ladies altogether.
Today, armed with a pink suit (not a Chanel), Ori Lenkinski summons Kennedy's energy to take the
audience on a tour of the here and now.
The Suit is a site-adaptable work for stage.
