Israel’s Theatrical Scene with Roy Horovitz @ Library of Congress, Madison Building, West Dining Room, 6th Floor, Room LM621
Feb 4 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Join Roy Horovitz for a discussion on modern Israeli theater, its multiculturalism (with plays in Hebrew, Arabic, English, Russian, and Amharic), and the distinctive features of the repertoire it presents. The presentation will be complimented by live readings and screened examples of outstanding theatrical performances including readings from Dan Clancy’s “The Timekeepers” which examines a relationship between a Jew and a homosexual in a concentration camp in 1941.

A question and answer session will follow the presentation. This program is free and open to the public.

An actor, director, and dramaturge, Roy Horovitz has been touring the world with Dan Clancy’s The Timekeepers for the past several years. He has directed on the stages of both the Cameri Theater of Tel Aviv and the Habima National Theater, two of Israel’s leading theaters, among others. Horovitz has taught theater at several institutions, including the University of Haifa, and has a regular spot on a radio broadcast, “Front Row,” which he also edits.

The program is sponsored by the Researcher & Reference Services Division & LC- GLOBE at the Library of Congress in cooperation with the Embassy of Israel and the Edlavitch Jewish Community Center of Washington, D.C.- GLOE.
