The Dybbuk

"Based on S. Ansky's 19th century folk legend, a dybbuk in Hebrew means attachment, clinging. It is a spirit that possesses a human being. Incorporating interactive media projection, contemporary dance fused with the technical grace of ballet, and opera in an immensely theatrical presentation." (from the website below)

Sounds beautiful! Who would like to come to this with me?

The show starts at 4:15pm, and runs for one hour. I will be at the venue at 3:45pm. I will hold a small bouquet of flowers so that you can spot me in the line-up.

I also recommend buying a ticket in advance, in case the show sells out.

    I felt bad for all the people who walked out and missed the sweet musical (almost rapturous) ending. But I guess experimental theatre is not everyone's cup of tea. I'd forgot to re-read the description before viewing, so I had NO idea what was going on, until I sort of starting getting it near the end. All in all, it's one noteworthy Fringe experience!

      (And not *too* many walked out, thankfully. Lots of people were troopers and stuck around the whole time).

      I also hadn't re-read the description of the play before going in. Later, though, I went onto the dance company's website and read up a bit about The Dybbuk. That website gives a bit more information about the Yiddish play on which this Fringe show is based. That actually sounds like a cool play, too. ;) Neat stuff overall.

    Quite the unique experience. Once I got used to the presentation style and began to interpret the various dances into a narrative that made sense to me, I found the performance quite enjoyable. Took a bit of getting used to, though.

    I won't be carrying my flowers with me, but I'll have a green/teal purse and a blue umbrella. I have short hair and glasses.

    I just want to point out that this theatre is air-conditioned.....and the weather's supposed to be really hot this weekend. Just saying. :D
