After a sold-out performance at the Everyman, Hampstead, in October 2005, SCORE returns to the South Bank Centre for one-night only.
Lemez Lovas of Oi Va Voi will direct guest musicians Moshikop and Rohan Kriwaczek in a live performance of a specially devised new score for East and West. In Sidney M. Goldin and Ivan Abramson’s silent movie (1923), streetwise New York flapper Mollie (Molly Picon) travels to her cousin’s wedding in a traditional Polish shtetl.
Lovas, Moshikop and Kriwaczek’s new score takes us from traditional klezmer to contemporary electronica, from vaudeville to breakbeat. As love blossoms between East and West, and the musical narrative unfolds, traditional and modern worlds are brought into collision. Score is irreverent and highly entertaining. A night not to be missed.
There will be an open rehearsal for students and young people in the day on 19th October. Please contact the JCC for more information.
