Silent Film showing w/Klezmer Score, Columbia, MO, May 7

Klezmer and Yiddish swing orchestra The People's Republic of Klezmerica

Time: 8pm

$8 for adults, $6 for children under 12.
tel: (573)446-0608

will present their original score to "Pass the Gravy," enlivening our rediscovery of the agile and inspired silent comedian Max Davidson. Davidson was extremely popular in the late 1920s when he starred in a number of shorts at the Hal Roach Studios, playing the roles of Jewish tailors, pawnbrokers, and junk dealers. Nearly forgotten today, Davidson infused American slapstick with agile antics and a unique brand of Eastern European moxie. The original score, which combines early Yiddish swing, klezmer, vintage "photoplay" music, and popular melodies, may be the first Yiddish-themed work in the emerging trend of accompanying silent films.

9th KlezKanada, Quebec, Canada, Aug 23-29

Musicians begin today

One of the best Klezmer/yiddish culture camps in North America is the annual "KlezKanada", held each years in the spectacular Laurentian mountains north of Montreal. Organized, in part, by the folks in Brave Old World, the program is always spectacular.

Events include lectures, a mini film festival, and of course, intensive workshops in singing, klezmer music, theatre, and dance. The "Kidz for Klez" program is also great. This is the best summer camp in the world (in fact, the event is hosted at a Jewish summer camp). Register early to get the best bunks.

Although most events start on Wednesday, the 25th, musicians should arrive this morning with the first workshops scheduled for this afternoon. Today is the day to arrive, get oriented, and get in some preliminary jamming.

Rebecca Joy Fletcher and Stephen Mo Hanan in
KLEYNKUNST! Warsaw's Brave and Brilliant Yiddish Cabaret

Sunday, March 11, 4:30pm
Makor (as part of Makor's Manifest Festival)
35 West 67th Street
(212) 601-1000
www.92y.org

Tickets: $15
(plus food and drink menu: no min.)

In the 1920s Warsaw's Yiddish cabarets drew from hugely varied influences: Weimar kabarett, Hassidic chant, vaudeville, Russian folk songs, jazz, tango and traditional cantorial music. The atmosphere was charged with contradiction: anti-religious sentiment and devotion; sexual bawdiness and naivete; political infighting and camaraderie.

KLEYNKUNST! reflects the spirit, bravado, and optimism of Jewish Warsaw between the Wars. This show brings to life the kleynkunst teater's songs, sketches, and spirit, in Yiddish and English translations. We pay homage to a world of brilliance and bite which no longer exists.

Researched and written by Rebecca Joy Fletcher
Musical Director, pianist and arrangements: Bob Goldstone
Director: Michael Montel

Miriam's Well

Saturday, November 22, 8:30 pm

Created by Miriam Peretz. In collaboration with Qadim Ensemble, Ya Elah, Salokhiddin Fakhriev, Manar Azriek, Wan-Chao Chang and Hannah Romanowsky

Interweaving dance, live music, poetry and sacred text; the stories of three visionary women gather communal waters from the universal well. These stories of Mary, Maryam, and Miriam from the Christian, Muslim, and Jewish traditions illumine the commonality and interconnectedness of these three traditions through a shared story and archetype. Drawing on traditional expressive arts and ritual, as well as contemporary theater and dance technique, Miriam's Well emotionally engages the audience in a rich image of shared heritage.

Witness Relocation "Haggaddah," NYC, 21 Mar, 2009

publicity photoWitness Relocation (witnessrelocation.org), whom
Performing Arts Journal dubbed "a dance-theater anarchist's
utopia," will perform "Haggaddah," a work based on the
Passover Seder, March 19 to 29 in La MaMa's Annex Theater.
The project will link post-modern dance, narrative
storytelling, rock concerts, lectures, and dramatic scenes
into a vibrant artistic rendering of one of the world's most
ancient holidays, presenting the story in a way that anyone
from any culture can get inside it.

Audiences will be seated at a 50 foot long table, with the
show happening on and around it. The traditional Seder is a
ritual telling of the Exodus from Egypt on an intimate
scale. This show examines the ritual in a large,
post-modern context. There will be a spectacle combining
dance, theater, music and design to immerse the audience in
an intense re-envisioning of both the story and the act of
coming together to tell it.

Shulamis, Agassiz Theater, Cambridge, MA, December 5, 2009

Shulamis is Harvard's first-ever bilingual Yiddish operetta, on stage this December at the Agassiz Theater.

A century after the death of the Father of Yiddish Theater, Avrom Goldfaden, a group of Harvard University students is preparing a revival of his most famous Yiddish operetta – Shulamis. This landmark bilingual production of Shulamis will premiere in Harvard’s historic Agassiz Theater December 2 - 6, 2009, nearly seventy years after Shulamis opened as the very last production of interwar Yiddish theatre in Warsaw.

While wandering thirsty through the desert, beautiful young Shulamis is rescued by handsome Avsholem, who swears to marry her upon his return from Jerusalem. When Avsholem fails to come for her, Shulamis pretends to go mad in order to keep her vow to him, yearning both for his return and for revenge. Her choice is at the center of this timeless Yiddish operetta of love and deception, of the price of revenge and the power of forgiveness.

Featuring a new English translation by renowned Yiddish translator Nahma Sandrow, a haunting musical score compiled by Folksbiene artistic director Zalmen Mlotek, a live orchestra, masks, and innovative choreography, Shulamis will charm and inspire both Yiddish theater aficionados and those who are new to the Yiddish theater.

Performance dates:

December 2, 3, 5, and 6 at 8 PM

Matinee December 6 at 2 PM

All performances will take place in Harvard's historic Agassiz Theater in picturesque Radcliffe Yard in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Agassiz Theater is located just a few blocks from the Harvard Square T Station at 5 James Street, Cambridge, MA 02138.

Tickets: $15 general, $10 students/seniors. Discounts are available for groups of ten or more.

Tickets on sale now at the Harvard Box Office: 617-496-2222 or online at www.shulamis.org.

Shulamis, Agassiz Theater, Cambridge, MA, December 2, 2009

Shulamis is Harvard's first-ever bilingual Yiddish operetta, on stage this December at the Agassiz Theater. A century after the death of the Father of Yiddish Theater, Avrom Goldfaden, a group of Harvard University students is preparing a revival of his most famous Yiddish operetta – Shulamis. This landmark bilingual production of Shulamis will premiere in Harvard’s historic Agassiz Theater December 2 - 6, 2009, nearly seventy years after Shulamis opened as the very last production of interwar Yiddish theatre in Warsaw. While wandering thirsty through the desert, beautiful young Shulamis is rescued by handsome Avsholem, who swears to marry her upon his return from Jerusalem. When Avsholem fails to come for her, Shulamis pretends to go mad in order to keep her vow to him, yearning both for his return and for revenge. Her choice is at the center of this timeless Yiddish operetta of love and deception, of the price of revenge and the power of forgiveness. Featuring a new English translation by renowned Yiddish translator Nahma Sandrow, a haunting musical score compiled by Folksbiene artistic director Zalmen Mlotek, a live orchestra, masks, and innovative choreography, Shulamis will charm and inspire both Yiddish theater aficionados and those who are new to the Yiddish theater. Performance dates: December 2, 3, 5, and 6 at 8 PM Matinee December 6 at 2 PM All performances will take place in Harvard's historic Agassiz Theater in picturesque Radcliffe Yard in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Agassiz Theater is located just a few blocks from the Harvard Square T Station at 5 James Street, Cambridge, MA 02138. Tickets: $15 general, $10 students/seniors. Discounts are available for groups of ten or more. Tickets on sale now at the Harvard Box Office: 617-496-2222 or online at www.shulamis.org.

Budzyn, the Play

A tribute to Holocaust victims
Celebrating the World Day of prayer 2010
Thursday, May 6, 2010, 8:00 P.M.
Sanders Theatre at Harvard University
45, Quincy Street
Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138

Tickets: $12; students: $8

Ticket Reservations: 617-496-2222

http://www.budzyntheplay.com

This first-ever performance is being produced as a tribute to Holocaust victims and to mark the World Day of Prayer 2010, celebrating unity in diversity and working for a world of peace and justice. The production will feature survivors, performers, musicians and dancers featuring music composer Edwin Geist performed by The Irving Fine Society Singers & Ensemble.

“Budzyn” awakens our consciences to the question of theatrical representation dealing with religious identity. The story takes place at the Nazi controlled Budzyn labor camp in Poland, where the commander was well known for subjecting the prisoners to particularly cruel tortures and told as seen through the eyes of one of its survivors, Henry S. Newman,

The commander, knowing that the young Mr. Newman had studied dramatic arts in order to become a director, asks him to organize a small performance with the prisoners in order to entertain him. The catch, however, was that if the Commander didn't laugh, he would humilate Henry in front of the other prisoners before cutting his throat and assuring that he die in slow agony.

Visionary director Guila Clara Kessous uses all forms of art to transmit the testimony of this survivor while overcoming the simple reference to the Shoah by attacking the crucial question of theatrical representation.

NYBC Paper Bridge Fest: The Firebird, Amherst, MA, 13 Jul 2010

NYBC Paper Bridge Festival logoOne of the most special New England events occurs not during the Fall leaf-gawking season, but in mid-July—starting today, in fact—when the National Yiddish Book Center opens its annual "Paper Bridge" festival, a week-long celebration of Yiddishkeit with lectures, workshops, film screenings, and of course, Jewish music new and old.

This year features two special exhibits, Mayer Kirshenblatt's paintings in a traveling exhibit titled: "They Call Me Mayer July" (so what more appropriate month!??). I am a major fan of the exhibit, and of his pictures, which capture life in pre-Holocaust Poland in a way that is both sweet and yet eschews the shmalzification of the period. Kirshenblatt's exhibit is balanced by a look at "Esn! Jews and Food in America. It's a hard combo to beat. [Off-topic, I note that the Jewish Women's Archive, where I work, has recently begun featuring regular guest blogs—is that an oxymoron?—on food and new kosher recipes. Yummy!

Tuesday night is a re-interpretation "The Firebird." Double Edge Theatre's interpretation of the classic Russian tale draws from the work of Mark Chagall and uses both the indoor and outdoor spaces of the Book Center to transport the audience into the imagination of the famous painter.

Price: $15/$12 for students

For more info: jakemarmer.wordpress.com

Jazz Talmud is a poetry and music project with Talmudic modes of dialogue, spontaneous interpretations, interruptions, arguing, and the ecstatic attempts at wisdom. The poems mimic Talmudic rhetoric, style and turns of phrase, as they reflect on the contemporary Jewish experience, jazz, dreams, loneliness and more. The horn players, acting as Talmud’s interpreters Rashi and Tosefot spontaneously riff on the spoken material and each other’s reaction to it.

AYN SOF ARKESTRA & BIGGER BAND

NYC’s newest addition to the canon of new Jewish influenced music and culture is the Ayn Sof Arkestra and Bigger Band, under the direction of saxophonist Jazz Rabbi Greg Wall and grammy winning trumpeter Frank London. The Arkestra consists of some of the most innovative artists on the scene today, including Pam Fleming, Paul Shapiro, Aaron Alexander, Fima Ephron, Eyal Maoz and many others. The repertoire will consist of original compositions and arrangements of the members and guest composers, in the great NuJu/Rad Jew/SunRaJoo tradition.

Thursdays, Nov 8, 15th, 2012, 7pm
Joe's Pub
425 Lafayette St
New York, NY 10003

Interweaving religious texts about money with interviews Rabins conducted over the course of two years (including with an FBI agent on the case, Madoff victims, and a Buddhist monk), A Kaddish for Bernie Madoff will investigate the intersection of mysticism and finance, the inevitability of cycles, and the true meaning of wealth.

Inspired by personal finance blogs, kabbalistic numerology, and the Kaddish, Rabins explores connections between Madoff's individual crimes and their larger communal and cultural impacts. Ordinary-seeming actions come to reveal truths about the deeper significance of Madoff's deception and the surprising interconnectedness of humans to one another.

Running time two hours.

An emigrant feels like a circus man who is traveling the endless doroga (Russian for "the road.") The sins of your past don't matter and your future is in limbo. It's a human condition that is painted poetically in "Cabaret Émigré," a new play by Sophia Romma, directed by Charles Weldon, to be presented by the Negro Ensemble Company from November 2 to 18, 2012 at the Lion Theater, Theater Row. The play contains ten Lewis Carroll-style testimonials that are told as cabaret acts by a collection of émigrés who are primarily Russian Jews (like the author), but also include émigrés from Latin America and Africa. All of them have no other motive than to entertain each other and their resulting acts are outrageous and macabre, like a journey down the rabbit hole.

The play contains ten Lewis Carroll-style testimonials that are told as cabaret acts by a collection of émigrés who are primarily Russian Jews (like the author), but also include émigrés from Latin America and Africa. All of them have no other motive than to entertain each other and their resulting acts are outrageous and macabre, like a journey down the rabbit hole.

The story begins in a tiny village more or less covered in snow, where a Hanukkah Latke, a fried potato pancake, is born screaming. Well, wouldn’t you scream if you were thrown into a pan of boiling oil? The Latke jumps from the boiling pan and races through the wintery village, deep in the throes of festive preparations. Lost amongst the snowy landscape, the Christmas lights and pine trees, will our Latke ever find where it belongs?

"Score: East and West", London, UK, 13 Mar, 2014

Score: East and West - silent film with live music

Thursday 13th March 7.30pm
JW3,
341-351 Finchley Road,
London, NW3 6ET
Doors open 7.30pm.

Lemez Lovas (Oi Va Voi, Shtetl Superstars, Yiddish Twist Orchestra), directs musicians Moshikop Yaniv Fridel and Rohan Kriwaczek in an irreverent live performance of a score for East and West, especially prepared for the JW3.

In Sidney M. Goldin and Ivan Abramson's silent movie (1923), streetwise New Yorker Mollie (Molly Picon) travels to her demure cousin's wedding in a traditional Polish shtetl. Lovas, Moshikop and Kriwaczek's cheeky new score takes us from traditional klezmer to contemporary electronica, from liturgical melancholy to party pop kitsch and from vaudeville to breakbeat. As love blossoms between East and West, and the musical narrative unfolds, traditional and modern worlds are brought into collision.

"The Sarajevo Haggadah @ BJMF, Watertown, MA, 26 Mar 2014

The Sarajevo Haggadah: A multi media performance by Merima Ključo with a special appearance by author Geraldine Brooks

Wed, Mar 26, 8:00pm
Arsenal Center for the Arts
321 Arsenal St.
Watertown, MA

The Sarajevo Haggadah: Music of the Book, composed by Bosnian-born accordionist Merima Ključo, traces the incredible journey of this most treasured manuscript that was smuggled from Spain during the Inquisition, hidden from Nazis during WWII by a Muslim librarian, saved from the ravages of the 1992 Bosnian War, and eventually restored to the National Museum in Sarajevo. Inspired by the musical traditions of Spain, Italy, Austria, and Bosnia-Herzegovina, Ključo collaborates with pianist Seth Knopp and artist Bart Woodstrup to create a multimedia performance exploring the Sarajevo Haggadah as a symbol of diaspora and return. The work is the 2013-2014 New Jewish Culture Network’s commission and touring project. Produced in partnership with New Center LIVE, stay for a post-concert discussion with Merima and Geraldine Brooks, author of People of The Book, the historical novel that inspired this production.

Reserved Seat Tickets: $36 (includes post-event reception), $25, Students: $15 are available by clicking here.

World premiere of a composition. The trio plays in this performance with San Francisco Choral Artists, a 24-voice chamber ensemble specializing in innovative programming and performance excellence. SFCA has premiered more than 190 works and won the 2012 ASCAP/Chorus America Award for Adventurous Programming.

The work is a choral mystery drama by Joshua Horowitz of the internationally renowned Bay Area ensemble Veretski Pass. It is based on Jewish superstitions that makes wild use of multilingual texts, and ancient sources, and combines homemade instruments with poly-choral avant-garde gestures to create a fantastic, hysterical, bizarre and often moving musical extravaganza, complete with the trio's improvisations.

Lilith, the adult, alternate Jewish story of creation is transformed into a magical folk opera by Veretski Pass in collaboration with the San Francisco Choral Artists. A group of virtuosic multi-instrumentalists, Veretski Pass brings together Jewish and non-Jewish sounds from across Europe.

The extraordinary and often bizarre score to Lilith, composed by award-winning composer, Josh Horowitz, features both choral and instrumental ensembles as well as Heather Klein (Lilith), Anthony Russell (Adam), and Michael Wex (narrator).

The edgy and humorous libretto draws on texts gleaned from Jewish superstitions, omens, dreams, and curses. San Francisco Choral Artists, a chamber ensemble of 24 singers, is widely recognized as one of the finest choral ensembles on the West Coast. The production is directed by Magen Solomon, artistic director of the Choral Artists.

"A wonderfuly inventive take on the usual seasonal fare." Time Out ****

This story begins in a tiny vilage, more or less covered in snow, where a Hanukhah latke, a fried potato pancake, is born screaming. The latke jumps from the boiling pan and races through the wintery village, deep in the throes of festive preparations. Lost amongst the snowy landscape and Christmas lights, will our Latke ever find where it belongs?


This adaptation of the absurdly funny Lemony Snicket story is vividly brought to life in Tall Stories' unique physical style, with live music, lots of laughs and a screaming potato pancake.

Jill Sobule’s Music from Yentl
Featuring the Isle of Klezbos

Thursday, January 15 at 7:30
David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, Frieda and Roy Furman Stage

Based on Isaac Bashevis Singer’s short story “Yentl the Yeshiva Boy” and updated with new music and lyrics composed by Jill Sobule, Yentl tells the story of a young girl in 19th century Eastern Europe forbidden to pursue her dream of studying Talmud. Unwilling to accept her fate, she disguises herself as a man. But when she falls in love, Yentl must decide how far she’s willing to go to protect her identity. Invigorated with a bracing klezmer/pop/rock score by Jill Sobule (the original “I Kissed a Girl,” “Supermodel”), Yentl asks up-to-the-minute questions about gender and sexuality.

“Yentl offers sweetness and laughter with a modern twist.”—Sarasota Herald Tribune

Adapted for the stage by Leah Napolin and Isaac Bashevis Singer

Additional music by Robin Eaton

A Lincoln Center commission

New Yiddish Rep: "Seltzer Nights" NYC, 18 Apr 2015

New Yiddish Rep’s “Seltzer Nights” will shake things up this spring!

Sat, Apr 18, 2015, 7pm
Castillo Theatre
543 W. 42nd St.
NYC

Tickets are $35. Call Ovation Tix at 866/811-4111, www.newyiddishrep.org or visit the Castillo Theatre box office, 543 West 42nd Street.

An audacious new show headlined by the preeminent Yiddish vaudevillian Shane Baker and starring a cast of tens will shake things up at New York this winter. “Seltzer Nights” recreates the bawdy, boisterous and often back-biting atmosphere of a Yiddish music hall on the Lower East Side of a century ago, but with much better acoustics. Staged as an immersive theatrical cabaret, this star-infested variety show features a who’s who of the booming downtown Yiddish theater and music scene. “Seltzer Nights” dusts off some of the more risqué songs and comedy routines of the time as well as some of the more blatantly theatrical moments of popular melodrama that were all the rage on the Yiddish rialto. Summoning up the spirits of legends like Molly Picon, Jenny Goldstein, Jacob Adler, Boris Thomashefsky, Dzigan and Schumackher, and Fanny Brice, “Seltzer Nights” will keep you up at night. Just like a good pastrami sandwich!

New Yiddish Rep: "Making Stalin Laugh" US Premiere, NYC, 17 May 2015

New Yiddish Rep is presenting the US premiere of “Making Stalin Laugh,” British playwright David Schneider’s dark comedy that details the events leading up to the chilling silencing by Stalin of the revered Yiddish actor Solomon Mikhoels. Directed by Allen Lewis Rickman, the developmental workshop production plays an exclusive two-night engagement:

Sunday and Monday May 17 and 18, both at 7pm
Theatre 80
80 St. Marks Place
East Village, NYC

Tix: $25, visit www.newyiddishrep.org or call 888-596-1027.

The production’s multi-lingual cast includes Israeli television star Gera Sandler (as Mikhoels), and Yelena Shmulenson (“A Serious Man”).

“Making Stalin Laugh” world premiered in London last summer in an English-language production that The Independent called “a fascinating story.” New Yiddish Rep’s revised version will be performed in three languages -- Yiddish and Russian mostly and some English -- in a production that aims for language authenticity in its portrayal of the remarkable theatrical community that thrived (under dubious circumstances of course) as Stalin’s early support of the celebrated Moscow State Yiddish Theatre (GOSET) for propaganda purposes suddenly gave way to something far darker after the defeat of the Nazis and end of World War II.

Dating back to 1921, when the GOSET troupe moved into a theatre a short distance from the Kremlin, Mikhoels and his colorful compatriots shrewdly managed to build a Yiddish theatre that was seen as a jewel of Jewish culture in the Soviet Union. Even though its audiences were mostly gentile, Jews in Russia followed with pride the rising fortunes of GOSET and the growing stature of the internationally acclaimed Mikhoels.

What happens when the woman you just fell in love with leads you to the edge? What happens when the soon-to-be President of the United States is so mired in melancholy that he can’t get out of bed? Clearly, this is terrain that can only be navigated by a clown. Circus artist and solo theater veteran Sara Felder leads us from the Civil War to a Lincoln look-alike convention to the top of UC Berkeley’s Campanile in her new comedy about love, war and coloring outside the lines.

Sara Felder is “wry, funny, smart and lovable,” (Washington Post,) a “local performance treasure” (S. F. Chronicle,) and someone who has “chutzpah up the wazoo.” (S.F. Weekly)

Aching to sing along with Yosl Cutler’s and Zuni Maud’s Modicut puppets on June 16th? Now you can – here is the chorus to one of their satirical songs, "I’m the Boss of my Shop," in the voice of a cranky Lower East Side garment-industry sweatshop boss:

Ikh bin der bos ba mir in shap shap shap
Di arbet muz leyfn hori yop yop yop
Ikh hob faynt in mitn drinen
Az me zingt ba di mashinen
Ikh bin der bos ba mir in shap shap shap

I'm the boss of my shop shop shop
The work has to be quick hurry up up up
I hate it when they suddenly start
Singing at their sewing machines
I'm the boss of my shop shop shop

Ek Velt is a roller-coaster journey through the lives and histories of some of the greatest Yiddish actors and directors of Europe and the world, who made Australia (the tail end of the world) their new home. It traces the history of Jews, Yiddish life and theatre in Australia, reflecting the historical connection of many Australian Jewish families to Yiddish theatre and their commitment to Jewish culture. It tells of the Jews who arrived during the convict era, those who inhabited the gold diggings and yet others who fled the Holocaust and made their brilliant contributions to Australian life and the Yiddish theatre. “Ek Velt” is performed mainly in Yiddish, with English surtitles.
