Mikro Theater's Historic Move to the Jerusalem Theater

Mikro Theaters Historic Move To The Jerusalem Theater 2
Twenty years ago Russian-Israeli playwright Irina Gorelik established the Mikro Theater, drawing on years of experience in Russia as a playwright, director, theater teacher and journalist. Initially a small-scale enterprise comprising of a small team of actors, Mikro has grown in leaps and bounds over the past two decades, becoming officially recognized by the Ministry of Culture in 2004 as a professional theater company. Earlier this year, Mikro secured a permanent home in the prestigious Jerusalem Theater complex, which is currently undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation with the support of the Jerusalem Municipality, the Jerusalem Foundation and the Sherover Foundation.

Mikro Theater and the Jerusalem Theater marked this historic partnership last week at a festive reception in the presence of Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and a performance of "Teibele and Her Demon," an adaptation of Isaac Bashevis Singer's dark, yet humorous 10-page fable. Mikro's new home includes offices, rehearsal and storage space and a performance hall that seats 141. The move has been accompanied by a comprehensive marketing campaign, with the support of the Jerusalem Foundation, aimed at bringing in an increased number of audience members.
