7: Play preview video, Gesher Theater's production of The Dybbuk, 2014.
This dramatic production, as well as the one seen in resource number eight, are contemporary Israeli adaptations of The Dybbuk. Gesher Theater was founded in 1991 by Russian immigrants to Israel, and sees itself as a bridge (in Hebrew, gesher) between the Russian and Israeli cultures.
Suggested activity: Watch this video, and the video in resource number eight. Ask students to compare and contrast the previews from these two productions. How are contemporary theater artists in Israel interpreting this century-old play anew? Which production do you think you would be most interested in seeing and why?
