An evening with Hassidic stories, Yiddish songs and commentaries of a lets, an old Yiddish clown, performed by Shura Lipovsky.
Shura Lipovsky is one of the most respected writers, composers, performers and pioneers within the realm of Yiddish song. Through her music, she strives for the validation of the Yiddish language as a poetic instrument for inter and intra-cultural dialogue and peace. Her recent ensemble Novaya Shira (New song) premiered successfully in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw in 2011. She is the director of the Summer Song School 'Golden Peacock' for JMI in London, she leads a monthly choir in MCY in Paris and was a member of the quartet Serendipity 4, with Theodore Bikel and Merima Kljuco. Her passion for Yiddish theater inspired her to put her career on hold in 2005/06 to study at l'Ecole Internationale de Théâtre de Jacques Lecoq in Paris. She has been featured in numerous international documentaries on Yiddish culture. www.shuralipovsky.com
