Inspired by S. Anky’s seminal play The Dybbuk, theatre maker Samara Hersch has created Dybbuks, a contemporary feminist version of the dybbuk myth that evokes the many ways the dead inhabit female bodies through language, voice, memory and desire. Co-presented by Chamber Made and the Kadimah Jewish Cultural Centre & National Library, please join us for an evening of discussion with Samara and lecturers Yoni Prior and Hinde Ena Burstin about the work and other Yiddish artists.

This Salon event will be a wonderful introduction for anyone interested in seeing this fascinating work when it premieres at Theatre Works, St Kilda, in mid-August. Click here for more details about the season.
