"Republic of Dreams", takes the magic realism writings and imaginings of WWII-era Polish-Jewish artist Bruno Schulz (1892-1942), adapting his lush, magical and sometimes erotic drawings to the stage. Using the theatre's signature style of physicality, imagery, puppetry, live instrumental and choral music, Double Edge deeply explores Schulz' powerful prose and life, as well as his banal death at the hands of a jealous Nazi, to create an unforgettable journey through the human experience in the modern world. "Republic of Dreams" is conceived and directed by Stacy Klien.

Double Edge Theatre, based in Ashfield, MA, is a creator of dynamic and visually stunning theater pieces. It has a unique approach, by establishing a home "The Farm" where the artist can practice, receive training, research and conduct cultural exchanges with other artists. Double Edge Theatre is widely renowned for long-term collaborations, classic literature adaptations, and original theater performances.

If you would like to arrange a group of students to see this production, please contact Kiku Sakai at 212-254-6468. This is a great opportunity for students of various majors such as Art, Theatre, Slavic and Jewish Studies and Literature to explore the culture and history of the early 20th Century in Poland. Double Edge Theatre would be happy to give your students a post-performance discussion on the production. Our student rate is $15. Please share this information with your colleague.
