„Eichmann Project - Terminal 1“

60 years after David Ben-Gurion’s dramatic announcement of Adolf Eichmann’s capture, Pathos Mathos Company revisits one of the seminal events in the history of Israel – the Eichmann trial. The Eichmann Project – Terminal 1 is a multidisciplinary stage event – a ritual of reenactment for camera and audience, invoking the voices that resonated in 1961 at Beit Ha’am (now the Gerard Behar Center) in Jerusalem, and returning to the public storm that followed the trial.

Inspired by the radio show “When Eichamann entered our home,” which first aired in 2002 and presented accounts of people whose lives had changed after the trial, RJ Dori Ben-Zeev will lead us through archival, media, and academic materials, as well as personal testimonies. The audience will be invited to settle into the role of the witness, delve into the various narratives that came up in the trial, trace the mechanisms of theater, which were shaken following the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, and search together for a safe haven during this tumultuous time.

Through the trial, Pathos Mathos examines the upheavals of the current time of systematic collapse, reminding us of Hannah Arendt’s warning, which currently seems more relevant than ever, about the dangers of obedience without criticism or thought, which seem more relevant than ever. The trial and the personal stories will bring to the fore the profound questions concerning the conditions that facilitate a certain (social and cultural) reality and how we can resist them.
