The Dybbuk
Southampton Arts Center
Southampton, NY
Share this event:

The Dybbuk is a Yiddish film classic
based on the celebrated play of the
same name by S. Ansky, written during
the turbulent years of 1912-1917. The
idea for the play came to Ansky as he
led a Jewish folklore expedition through
small towns of Eastern Europe, which
was cut short by the outbreak of World
War I. The Dybbuk reflects Anskys
deep perception of the shtetls religious
and cultural mores. Plans to produce
the play in Russian by Stanislavskys
Moscow Art Theater in 1920 were
aborted by the Bolshevik Revolution.
Ansky, who died in 1920 never lived
to see his play produced. The play
however, was destined to become one of
the most widely-produced in the history
of Jewish theater. Its rich ethnographic
tapestry, mystical themes, star-crossed
lovers and haunting melodies were
designed to bridge the historical abyss.
Boundaries separating the natural
from the supernatural dissolve as
ill-fated pledges, unfulfilled passions
and untimely deaths ensnare two
families in a tragic labyrinth of spiritual
possession. The film was made on
location in Poland in 1937 and brought
together the best talents of Polish
Jewry, script writers, composers,
choreographers, set designers, actors
and historical advisors. The exquisite
musical and dance interludes evoke
the cultural richness of both shtetl
communities and Polish Jewry on the
eve of World War II.
