Founded in 2003, Ensemble Aspamia brings their unique theatrical language to stage adaptations of monumental literary works, performances furthering Modern Hebrew poetry, original Israeli plays, and classics clad in modern garb.

Based in Tel Aviv and bringing together professional artists from all levels of Israeli theater, the Ensemble takes their genre defining, postmodern, multi-disciplinary work all over Israeli.

Who hasn’t heard of Sigmund Freud, Karl Marx and Socrates? But who has heard of Martha Freud, Jenny Marx, and Xantippe?

Everyone knows the expression “behind every successful man there is a woman”. But what does it really mean to “stand behind” a man who is a genius? What prices are paid by the woman who stands behind a man? Why, in fact, does she stand behind him instead of beside him? And why does she disappear from the stage of history when he becomes famous?

Yossefa Even-Shoshan and Dalia Shimko’s Revolutionaries` Wives creates an imaginary, although plausible, history that rounds out the narratives of the ‘geniuses’ who changed the world and the women who changed them.
