The Talmud on Stage Project offers the participants of the conference of the International Council of Christians and Jews (ICCJ) a very special session about Pandemics from the Biblical times through the Talmudic era to our own days. The performance will be based on improved theatre with a troop of improv actors, including invited experts from the two faiths, and the participation of the audience. The annual ICCJ's conference will be held online due to the pandemic. The Talmud on Stage must adapt the situation, which at the same time provides us the opportunity to share the event with a much wider audience: We invite you from all over the globe to join our virtual live event and enjoy this special night.
The Talmud, the authoritative text of Jewish law, treated the Biblical texts with impressive intellectual boldness and creativity and adapted them to its then present circumstances. The Itt és Most (Right Here and Right Now) Company does the same: it reads and enacts the Talmudic stories from our perspective, while keeping the intrinsic feature of Talmudic stories, namely that one can never know where the stories start and end. However we will kick off the performance with the question of the conference: When all this is over, how do we want the world to be different? There is no promise for one right answer but many… Join us, inspire and get inspired.
