Barak Marshall's Monger

"Bursting with energy and human passion."
- The Jerusalem Post
Barak Marshall is one of Israel’s most original new voices, and with Monger, he has choreographed a highly theatrical work that uses evocative imagery and intense physicality to explore the dynamics of hierarchy, power, dignity and the compromises one makes in order to survive. Marshall draws from Jean Genet’s The Maids and Robert Altman’s film Gosford Park to create a mysterious world, enhanced by the music of Balkan Beat Box, Handel, Verdi and NPR’s Yiddish Radio Project.

The beautifully restored Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, opened in 1984, was originally the Portland Public Theatre, built in 1928.
The Italian Rococo Revival architecture was said to be the national showcase of Rapp & Rapp, renowned Chicago theatre architects. Visitors are greeted by a 65 foot high "Portland" sign above the Broadway Marquee, which contains approximately 6,000 theatrical lights.
