About this show

In celebration of it's Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Year, Double Edge Theatre brings it's acclaimed performance Republic of Dreams to Boston, presented by the Charlestown Working Theater, in association with the American Repertory Theatre conceived by celebrated director Stacy Klein in collaboration with a roster of distinguished international collaborators. Republic of Dreams takes from the magic realism writings and imaginings of WWII-era Polish-Jewish artist Bruno Schulz (1892-1942), as well as adapts 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.
