The DYBBUK Project
DYBBUK is a 5-year research project, based at the University of Haifa and funded by the European Research Council, that sets out to uncover and explore the popular theatre that made up the daily cultural reality of the Jewish masses at the turn of the 20th century. Part of the DYBBUK Project is developing and implementing an interactive open-access online database of Yiddish popular theatre materials. The database will be a rich, searchable, and constantly updated repository of artists, musicians, works, sources, and their diverse intersections. The database will contain information and archival materials about performances, their artistic contexts, with manuscripts, sound recordings, and relevant scholarship.
