Govrin’s theatre can be experienced like a living mandala and a prayer forms the structure of her prize-winning novel HaShem (The Name). Discussing the sacred in art, she will show clips from her experimental performance, That Night's Seder and her stage adaptation, Gog and Magog, based on Martin Buber's Hassidic novel, considered one of the groundbreaking works of contemporary Israeli theatre.
