In Yiddish mythology, dybbuks are the unresolved souls who seek to find form through living bodies. This new work from Chamber Made evokes the many ways that the dead inhabit female bodies through language, voice, memory and desire.

Dybbuks is a contemporary theatre and music work created by lead artist Samara Hersch and collaborators together with three performers, a local Yiddish choir of inter-generational women and four female musicians.

Part performance, part concert, part exorcism, Dybbuks combines mythic stories, traditional Yiddish songs with contemporary composition to present a feminist reimagining of S.Ansky’s iconic Dybbuk story.

Through original and traditional text, music, song and image, Dybbuks deconstructs ideas of the possessed female body, exploring the way in which women across generations continue to embody, preserve and revive the dead.
