16: 30 SHIMON LEVY: THE BIBLE AS THEATRE (Lecture in English)
Although the Old Testament has been thoroughly analysed as literature, and many of its highly dramatic chapters, stories, poetry and prophecies have been adapted for theatre, THE BIBLE AS THEATRE has hardly been dealt with. As a "threshold-medium", ancient theatre hovered between the holy and the profane. The hostility the Hebrews expressed toward the "indecencies" of theatre was the result of religious, cultural and economic oppression they suffered from Greeks, Romans and other peoples whose theatre was well developed. This lecture is dedicated to the theatrical potential of the Old Testament, exposing a refined sense of theatricality.
