FABRIK explores the real life of Moritz Rabinowitz, a Polish Jew who immigrated to Norway at the turn of the last century in order to escape pogroms and persecution, and to build a future for himself. FABRIK chronicles Rabinowitz's life in Norway in the 1930's and 40's, from his rise as an entrepreneur to his private life as a family man and his courageous moments as an outspoken denouncer of anti-semitism, Hitler and the Nazi's, ending with his incarceration in Sachsenhausen concentration camp. Inspired by Nordic and Yiddish folktales, FABRIK is presented with original hand-and-rod puppets, masks, music and sound design, informed by research of the period, the writings and life of Moritz Rabinowitz, his family, workers and countrymen.
