Based on Mendel Beilis’s story example this play shows how tsarist Russia 110 years ago made the Jews its “objective enemy” in order to whip up the social confrontations for political purposes. Russia applies the same repressive methods today, implementing imperial policy
through the war against Ukraine and the Ukrainians. We each experience it right now. Therefore, we perceive Beilis’s story through an experience of an actress and an actor. Voice and sound are the key media; the audio sequence is provided to the audience through
headphones. We thus research the way listening clarifies the statement and affects the perception of facts and events.
It is a documentary performance produced as part of the Face to Faith International Project, which is dedicated to the topic of faith and its significance for society today.
