Di khumeshlider: les chants du Pentateuque

Dimanche 26 février 2012 à 17h
Théâtre de la Cité Bleue, avenue de Miremont 46, 1206 Genève

Di khumeshlider: les chants du Pentateuque d'après Itzik Manger
par le LufTeater de Strasbourg, avec Astrid Ruff et Rafaël Goldwaser. Mise en scène: Sabine Lemler. Musique originale de Jean-Raymond Gélis.

Spectacle joué en yiddish, surtitré en français

Les Chants du Pentateuque sont un ensemble de poèmes inspirés très librement du premier livre de la Bible. Itzik Manger met en scène les figures essentielles de la Genèse : Adam et Eve et leurs fils Abel et Caïn, les trois patriarches, Abraham, Isaac et Jacob les quatre matriarches et bien d'autres... Itzik Manger n’a pas besoin de "raconter" la Genèse: Tout le monde la connaît! Au contraire, il brode, fait des allusions, des anachronismes, joue avec les personnages, les époques, les situations, les mots… Ces procédés créent tout au long du spectacle des effets comiques irrésistibles.

Feidman's 75th anniversary performance by Moussa Berlin



A few days ago, Moshe (Moussa) Berlin wrote this note:
"Some years ago, when playing the ceremony of 7th of Adar, at the tomb of Rabi Shimeon in Meron, There came a rumor that the famous composer and songwriter Naomi Shemer, become ill. My thought at that time was what can I to help her in that situation. (Meron is a place where people are praying, crying, asking their requests for health, livelihood matchmaking etc'.) So I decided to play one of her songs (Shirat Ha'asabim to words of R' Nachman), and to combine it with a Breslaver Nigun. After I have done it (it was the first time in history that such song was played in Meron) I was told that one of the Chassidim asked his friend :"What is that tune?" and he was answered: "Oh, that is un alter nign". I don't know how it helped but Naomi died one and half year later. And now the clip[above] (played in another situation with my son and daughter)"
