See Under: "Love"
Based on the novel by David Grossman
Adapted and directed by Bosmat Hazan
About the performance:
A new stage adaptation of David Grossman's masterpiece, which follows Momik, the son of Holocaust survivors, in his attempts to tame the "Nazi beast" and bring relief to those around him in 1950's Jerusalem. The show follows Momik's journeys in the "land of There" and his investigation of Bruno Schultz, a Jewish-Polish writer, deconstructing and reconstructing reality in his head, searching for meaning after the Holocaust, which might finally afford him a return to life itself.

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.
