Schauspiel Leipzig - Residence At Spinnerei
Transit – between the living and the dead … According to Jewish folklore, the dybbuk is an oft-malevolent spirit of the dead. It enters into the body of a living person and causes them to behave irrationally. The spirit can only be driven out by engaging it physically and psychically to learn what it wants.
The performance »Der Dybbuk« (»The Dybbuk«) examines ghostly manifestations, spiritual fervour and forms of possession. It combines the striking poses of flamenco with the transcendental phenomena of the spirit. The famous Polish film »Dibuk« (1937) by Michal Waszyński served as a source of inspiration.
