Someone’s Home

“Someone’s Home” is the question asked, and the answer received when we enter an empty house. Upon entering the home of Haim Nahman Bialik, the question, the answer and the void left are filled with a newfound meaning. Bialik House welcomes its inner demons and invites you to come and meet them, in a musical and theatrical journey through the house and life of the national poet.

Urban legends say that Bialik’s home is one of the most active haunted houses in the world, showing many cases of supernatural activity, and providing endless evidence of ghosts lurking about. Naturally, “Someone’s Home” is using the helpful ghosts, to allow a renewed acquaintance with the acclaimed poet, his creation, the residents of his house and his dark secrets.

The poems have been carefully selected to accompany the tour of the house, in consideration of their original meaning. The theatrical performances of the poems, the compositions and arrangements are all weaved into the different characters and the revealed details of Bialik’s life and residence in Tel Aviv; his famous hospitality, the grief over not having children, his beloved dog Kappi, the strict housekeeper, secrets and forbidden love affairs and the yearning for a pure source of inspiration, opposing the success and a life of wealth.

The musical and the visions will be lead by the following apparitions:

Bialik – Bezalel Borochov

The Poet’s Wife – Anael Blumental

The Housekeeper – Yoni Tal

The Mistress – Adi Paz

The Poet’s Dog – Zvi Petrovski
