 For the first time in Israel: the play "Dead Souls. AbsurDrama" in Hebrew

In February, March and May, the Independent Multicultural Theater Project will perform Dead Souls. AbsurDrama». For the first time in Israel, the audience is presented with the original stage version of the immortal poem in Hebrew.

"I look at you, listen and think: what kind of person would you be, if in the same way, and strength and patience, would you strive for good work, having a better goal. My God, how much good you would have done! If at least one of those people who love goodness would make as much effort for it as you do to get your penny, how our land would flourish! How prophetic these words sound today, written by Nikolai Vasilyevich Gogol almost two centuries ago in a new performance by the Independent Multicultural Theater Project ‚ÄúDead Souls. AbsurDrama». The performance tries to answer the main question: who is Chichikov – a swindler or a “good person”, forced to exist in a certain reality? The story of a scam, terrifying in its cynicism – the sale and purchase of the dead – in the original director's interpretation turns from a sharp satire into an existential parable about the meaning of being, soul and matter, man and society. Performance "Dead Souls. AbsurDrama" is a new work of the theater group, which premiered in September 2021. This performance – an attempt to project what Gogol described almost 200 years ago onto Israeli realities and reality. The director's interpretation of the performance is based not only on the first, well-known volume of the poem “Dead Souls”; she tries to comprehend the more complex essence of Gogol's trilogy: reflections on a useless lifestyle, moral decline, the triumph of profit over honesty, humanity, compassion. These themes raised by the authors of the performance seem to be consonant with what is happening with a person and society today, and an attempt to turn the main character to God and to the soul becomes a kind of revelation of the director's intention of the performance.

The next performances will be held in Tel Aviv on 20 and February 21.
