Part klezmer cabaret, part oriental ragtime, part theatrical storytelling, Berlin-based The Disorientalists are presented by Dash Arts and Nest Collective.

Disorientalists are Yuriy Gurzhy (RotFront, Russendisko, Born in UA), Daniel Kahn (Daniel Kahn and Te Painted Bird, Brothers Nazarof, Semer Ensemble) and Marina Frenk (Marina & Kapelsky, Real Baba Dunyah). The three Berliners-bychoice joined forces to write and perform a piece of musical theatre based on the life of Essad Bey a.k.a. Kurban Said a.k.a. Lev Nussimbaum, author of the great Romeo and Juliet-esque novel 'Ali and Nino', set in Baku during the upheaval of the Russian revolution. A little bit folkloristic, a little bit klezmer, incorporating elements of swing and oriental romance, Gurzhy and three other band members perform songs inspired by Essad Bey on baglama, accordion and piano.
