The Jewish Theatre San Francisco (TJT) presents Fabrik: The Legend of M. Rabinowitz.
Inspired by Nordic and Yiddish folktales and the time period, Fabrik blends European cabaret with traditional puppetry and reportage. Puppets fly through the air, dance, drive in cars, ride in boats, live, love, and die.
The New York City-based Wakka Wakka Productions use hand-and-rod puppets, masks, mini-sets and props, music composed by the ensemble, and a score by Lars Peter Hagen to tell the story of Morris Rabinowitz, a Polish Jew who immigrated to Norway at the turn of the century.
The production's New York premiere received the 2008 Henry Hewes Award Nomination for Puppet Design, 2008 Unima Citation of Excellence, as well as a 2008 New York Drama Desk Award Nomination.
Fabrik is a co-production with the Nordland Visual Theatre, Stamsund, Norway. This play contains imagery and subject matter that is not suitable for children under 10.
