  • Description

    A MUSICAL REVUE WHICH POKES FUN AT THE YOUNG REVOLUTIONARIES OF TODAY OPENED AT THE OHEL THEATRE IN TEL AVIV ON TUESDAY (FEBRUARY 25). IT IS CALLED "OUT OF THIS WORLD", WAS WRITTEN BY AMOS KENAN, AND THE YOUNG CAST ARE DIRECTED BY MIRI MAGNUS.

    THE REVUE IMAGINES WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF A "CULTURAL REVOLUTION" OF THE KIND THAT OCCURRED IN FRANCE IN MAY 1967 WERE TO HAPPEN IN ISRAEL.

    IN A QUICK SEQUENCE OF SKETCHES AND SONGS THE YOUNG ISRAELI "REVOLUTIONARIES" DECLARE WAR ON WHAT THEY SEE AS THE EVILS OF PRESENT-DAY SOCIETY, THE COMMERCIALISATION OF LOVE, BEAUTY, ART, SEX, THE FAMILY.

    BUT SOON THE SATIRE TURNS ON THE YOUNG REVOLUTIONARIES THEMSELVES. WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE ENERGETIC YOUNG PEOPLE WHO FIGHT FOR THE OVERTHROW OF "BOURGEOIS SOCIETY"? WILL THEY BECOME BOURGEOIS THEMSELVES AND TURN INTO A NEW ESTABLISHMENT, WHICH ANOTHER GENERATION WILL RISE TO OVERTHROW IN ITS TURN?
    THE REVUE SUGGESTS THAT THE REVOLUTIONARY LEADER, WHO IS GIVEN THE NAME "DANNY COHEN-BANDIT" AFTER THE FRENCH STUDENT LEADER DANIEL COHIN-BENDIT, WILL START TO ENJOY THE CULT OF LEADERSHIP, AND THAT THE PRETTY YOUNG GIRL AGITATOR WILL BECOME A SOCIETY LADY.

    BUT THE REVUE ENDS WITH THE TRIUMPH OF LOVE: AS THE COMPANY SINGS THE FINAL SONG "LOVE WILL ALWAYS WIN", ACTORS GO DOWN INTO THE AUDITORIUM AND INVITE MEMBERS OF THE AUDIENCE TO DANCE WITH THEM.
