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.

part of #KulturfestNYC week-long international Jewish performing arts festival (100+shows)
