Continuing Studies Manager Evan Tapper has received an Ontario Arts Council grant to create My Dybbuk, an experimental animated documentary. The project will tell the incredible life story of the late Canadian theatre legend John Hirsch through hand-drawn rotoscope animation. In 1973, Hirsch directed The Dybbuk at the Manitoba Theatre Centre, a play based on Jewish folklore. The animation echoes the supernatural narrative structure of the play where the ghost of John Hirsch suddenly appears to Evan, 41 years later to inspire a new generation of artists.
