Mania – A Legend in her Lifetime
A docu drama based solely on true facts of the life of Mania Wilbushewitch Shohat (1880–1961)
A thrilling weave of authentic vintage film footage, brilliant ensemble acting and singing creates a compelling stage performance of a radical and revolutionary female pioneer. The performance reflects on the birth of the state of Israel, its socialistic roots in Imperialist Russia and explores the passion and heartbreak of one woman who courageously risked everything to forge the society of equality and tolerance that she believed in.
