The Dybbuk

A play by Roy Chen based on a play by S. Ansky

Upcoming dates

Directed by Yevgeny Arye

"If we are not together - the world will cease to exist" (Hanan to Lea)

 

Hanan, a poor Yeshiva student, deeply involved in Kabbalah, learned that his beloved Lea, daughter of the wealthy man of the shtetl, will be given to another guy. His incongruous death changes the cause of the events. The story takes an incredible turnover.

 

His soul gets stuck between two worlds. He isn't dead and not alive. His restless soul can't find peace. She is chased by his image…Everything gets out of order. Wedding upset.

 

Hanan's soul penetrates to her body and soul. The bride is possessed by dybbuk, sickness…Love?

 

First Performance - January 13, 2014

Reviews

"Efrat Ben-Zur gives in to this role with her entire body and spirit. Yevgeny Arye knows how to instigate impressive stage moments…every moment in this production is interesting, beautiful, and stimulates the imagination."

Ha’aretz

"A spectacularly beautiful and powerfully designed production… Efrat Ben-Zur in her most powerful performance in the theatre to date…Doron Tavori is a walking energy bomb of animal desire."

Yediot Aharonot

"An excellent and entertaining production…this production is impeccable. Every aspect is done with extreme attention and wisdom, the choice of imagery is spot on, and is translated to the stage wonderfully."

Israel today

"A rich theatrical world, elegant dialogue with a mythical past, and above all a duo of phenomenal actors… many moments of magic make this story a legend… it has endless beauty."

Ynet

"The Dybbuk” at the Gesher theatre gives grace to the audience and to the myth…a certain dense and black magic appears on the stage, a waterfall of dark, bitter, thick and sinking chocolate. Due to the fine humor, due to the powerful Ben-Zur and Tavori, due to the play that Roy Chen gave a new life to with simple and deep words, “The Dybbuk” is an extraordinary theatrical experience"
