The Narrow Bridge
This new immersive experimental theatre work by Vancouver theatre artist Ariel Martz-Oberlander explores the themes of the classic 1912 Yiddish play The Dybbuk and why it is so indelible in the Jewish theatre repertoire.
In collaboration with Chimerik, a digital multimedia collective and shadow puppetry company Mind of a Snail, the work depicts a rich and beautiful world infused with cultural practices and joyful survival.
Pomarantz’s approach frames “healing” not as an individual and linear journey, but as a collective political and cultural act, which is messy, strange, circular, ancestral, shattering, transformative and ongoing with a primarily Jewish creative team finding their place in the Canadian Mad arts community as early career artists.
