Founded as Canada’s first professional Jewish theater in 1978, Nephesh Theatre, now based in Tel Aviv, produce plays in repertory throughout Israel in Hebrew and English. Their works reflect a plurality of beliefs and emphasize common bonds between different communities within Israeli society.


Three actors inhabit Robert Zimmerman, better known as Bob Dylan, at various points of the singer-songwriters storied career, from his folk roots to his explorations of rock and country. As they trace his voice’s journey through decades, they are joined by dancers from Israel’s Sheketak Group who give his poetry and music vital physical expression through movement.


Adapted and directed by Nephesh Theatre founder Howard Rypp, and coproduced with Haifa Theatre, The Rain and the Wind is a family-friendly, multi-media dance theatre performance based upon the life and songs of one of America’s most enduring and insightful artists.
