Grossman onstage
Jaffa Fest International Theatre Festival presents a special spotlight on the literary works of author David Grossman, winner of the Man Booker Prize and the Israel Prize. Grossman's works have been successfully adapted for the stage in Israel and around the world for decades. How does the literary work of Grossman appear when brought to life on-stage?
The festival program will examine this question, focusing on three of Grossman's most prominent works: To the End of the Land by the Schauspiel Theatre of Frankfurt Germany, a world premiere of the documentary piece The Yellow Wind, and a new adaptation of the seminal novel See Under: Love.
The performances will be accompanied by discussions with the author, in a space that enables a dialogue between reality and fiction, life and art.
