theatre dybbuk will present a virtual in-process presentation of its latest work-in-progress, breaking protocols, hosted in partnership with the Museum of Jewish Montreal (https://museemontrealjuif.ca) at 7:00 PM ET on Tuesday, December 15, 2020. The approximately 60-minute event will be presented through Zoom and will include readings from the in-process script performed by the show’s ensemble, as well as a chat with theatre dybbuk’s artistic director. Immediately following the discussion, audience is also invited to participate in an optional 30-minute writing workshop that explores the themes of the show. ABOUT BREAKING PROTOCOLS Set in the U. S. on the eve of the 1940 election, breaking protocols examines the quintessential antisemitic text, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” through the lens of a decaying vaudeville troupe using the tricks of the trade to try to set the record straight. Exploding "The Protocols," theatre dybbuk's performance will explore contemporary issues connected to racism, propaganda, and false narratives. Currently scheduled to premiere at the Philosophical Research Society (prs.org) in Los Angeles, CA in August 2021, breaking protocols is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation & Development Fund Project, co-commissioned by Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) and The Hive at Leichtag Commons.
