THE DONKEY'S JAW “What kind of stories did you grow up with?” Raphael Rodan asks the audience and casually adds “for me, these were the stories where God is the bad guy and women have no place but as a rib covering a man's lungs, the notorious stories of the Old Testament.”

In “The Donkey’s Jaw”, a 60-min storytelling show with live music, Rodan strips ancient myths like Cain and Abel, Samson and Delilah and King Saul of their religious connotations and revives them with the light of his own personal life experiences. He tells about growing up in modern Israel, falling in love with his first girlfriend, feeling jealousy towards his brother and getting rejected by his father. While gracefully shifting from salty humour to moments of great depth, he uses the stories to reflect together with the audience on the universal topics that are as relevant today as they were thousands of years ago.

The storytelling is accompanied by the angelic singing of singer-songwriter Erik Sjøholm, all with a hint of Leonard Cohen in the air.
