Award winning Warlikowski production of “Krum” in Tel Aviv


Polish director Krzysztof Warlikowski’s provocative production of Hanoch Levin’s play “Krum” will be performed by the TR Warszawa at the Cameri Theatre in Tel Aviv on April 18th and 19th, one of 16 international productions participating in the year-long international theatre festival celebrating Tel Aviv’s centennial.
“Krum” premiered in 1975 at the Haifa Theatre, directed by Hanoch Levin and starring Ilan Toran. Levin’s laconically humorous story of the return of the prodigal son who has learned and achieved nothing has been staged frequently both in Israel and abroad, including a production at the Cameri directed by Michael Gurevtich in 2000.
Warlikowski received the 2008 Obie Award for his direction of “Krum”, which breaks out of the boundaries of the stage in different dimensions, including both video projections and interaction with the audience. Born in 1962, Warlikowski has directed over 30 plays, in Poland and other countries, ranging from Shakespeare to Tony Kushner’s “Angels in America”. In Israel he has directed Kafka’s “The Trial” at Beit Zvi and “Hamlet” at the Beer Sheva Theatre.
Affiliated with the TR Warszawa Theatre from 1999 to 2007, he is currently Director of the NOWY Theatre in Warsaw. Costumes and set design are by Malgorzata Szczesniak and musical score by Pawl Mykietyn, both artists who have worked with Warlikowski for many years.  Jacek Poniedzialek, who is also performing, translated the play into Polish.
The play will be performed in Polish with Hebrew superscripts.
Duration: 2 hours and 45 minutes (without intermission)
Performances: Saturday, April 18th at 20:30
Sunday, April 19th at 20:30
