In days of yore, theater troupes would schlep their show along dusty and muddy roads, popping into towns and villages to offer the locals some entertainment and a brief respite from their daily grind. That is something Irena Gorelik, head of the Mikro Theater company, can fully appreciate.Gorelik made aliya from the former Soviet Union in 1994, already a seasoned theater professional. She quickly set about forming the Mikro company in her new hometown of Jerusalem, working out of bomb shelters and assorted other facilities. After a decade-long nomadic existence, Mikro finally found a long-term base in the smaller of the Khan Theater’s two halls.Now, another decade on, she and her troupe have moved into much grander premises, becoming the first repertory theater company to set up shop within the Jerusalem Theater complex. The move not only provides Mikro with a highly respectable and plush home, it gives the host arts center the opportunity to house a bona fide repertory company within its walls in addition to the vast array of outside productions it puts on year round.
