dance sailorHop on the Eurostar for another chance to see the highly acclaimed commission of a new live soundtrack for the classic 1923 Yiddish silent film East and West.

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.
