ID Festival 2024 – Scenic Reading

7 October 2023, the Hamas terrorist invasion of Israel, shook the Jewish world to the core. Since then, it has been difficult to predict what the "situation" will bring the next day. The event series "writingSITUATIONs" offers a space for this unpredictability.

Jewish authors from Israel and the diaspora are continuously writing new literary texts that deal with the realities after 7 October.

The participating authors include Lena Gorelik, Julya Rabinowich, Hadar Galron, Avishai Milstein and Roy Chen.
As part of the journey, new texts will be presented from place to place in the form of staged readings.

For the ID Festival on 11 April, the actress Anabel Möbius, among others, will perform a selection of three to four texts, accompanied by projections of Israeli art created after the massacre.
