A New Anthology of Six Plays by Hanoch Levin, in a New German Translation
A new anthology of six plays by Hanoch Levin, in new German translations by Matthias Neumann, is being published by the German publishing house, Neofelix Verlag.
The anthology will contain translations of “Suitcase Packers,” “Schitz,” “Walkers in the Dark,” “The Torments of Job,” “The Child Dreams” and “Murder.” The last three of these plays have been previously translated into German, and “The Child Dreams” and “Murder” have been performed at theaters throughout Germany.
The translator of the anthology, Matthias Neumann, participated in a residency for the translation of Hanoch Levin’s “The Child Dreams” and “The Constant Mourner,” which took place in 2019 at Mishkenot Sha’ananim in Jerusalem.
