May 1 – May 19
All he wanted was to be alone. But when you’re not alone in your head, where can you go? Running from the ghosts of his past, young writer Daniel Haymovitch seeks isolation in a derelict apartment amid the slums of Tel Aviv. But what seemed like a chance to reflect soon descends into an absurdist nightmare as the space is invaded by a horde of crazed tenants, intent on prying some revelation from the hapless young man – at any cost. As the walls of his mind start breaking down, Daniel must choose what he believes in and where he will stand. Hilarious and unnerving, Tenant Haymovitch is a roller coaster ride through a life lived in the shadow of power, tradition and heartbreak. Israel in all its complexity – as seen trough the eyes of one lost .
“Very organic… very effective… Strong performances.” CBC Radio
“an accomplished ensemble… As director, McLaren delivers… Theatre-goers who aspire to rich fare will be ideally served… Entertaining and stimulating Tenant Haymovitch is… another in the long line of Theatre Inconnu’s thought-provoking productions.” Janis Lacouvee, I Have My Own Life to Live
“Under the direction of Matthew McLaren, Theatre Inconnu’s production of Tenant Heymovitch by iconoclastic Israeli performance artist Ariel Bronz is perplexing, amusing, and has a lot going on.” Culture Vulture TV
