About the heroes

Immanuel Velikovsky (1895-1979) - physician and psychoanalyst, creator of non-traditional theories in the field of history, geology and astronomy, in particular the author of the resonant books "Worlds in Collision", "Centuries in Chaos" and "revisionist" chronology, revising a number of provisions of ancient history .

Albert Einstein (1879-1955) - theoretical physicist, one of the founders of modern theoretical physics, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921, public figure and humanist. Lived in Germany, Switzerland and the USA. Honorary Doctor of about 20 leading universities in the world, member of many academies of sciences.

About the Developer

Ido Netanyahu is an Israeli playwright, author and physician.

“In writing Worlds in Collision, I tried to explore the limits of Man in his quest to reach the Supreme Perfect Knowledge, and the price he has to pay for it. Einstein, one of the two characters in the play, made a real revolution in our understanding of the universe and achieved great recognition, while Velikovsky, the second character in the play, tried to do the same, but in a different direction, and remained infamy. Why such difference? This is one of those intriguing questions that are reflected in the play,” commented the author.

Worlds in Collision was first staged by Nabi Abdurakhmanov in 2015 in Tashkent. The performance was warmly received by the audience not only on the native stage, but also at several representative international festivals.

The performance will be in Russian with English subtitles.
