Theatre school on the theme of medieval Jewish theatre

Article publié le 25 March 2024

At the Museo Sefardi, from 5 to 7 April 2024

Following the success of the previous edition in 2023, the museum is offering to explore medieval Jewish theatre through the music, dance, mime, pantomime and costumes that accompanied these stage performances. The main focus is on satirical plays that mock both the Jews and the conditions in which they lived, which varied from place to place and from period to period. These plays were often linked to the Purim festival, encouraging a variety of performances and the use of masks and characters to break many taboos on what was perceived as the “day of fools”.
