|The National Yiddish Theatre – Folksbiene presents |
Dmitri Slepovitch's NEW MULTIMEDIA MUSICAL SHOW:
TRAVELING THE YIDDISHLAND
with a DJ and oboist Damian Marhulets (Germany)
JUNE 13, 2011, 7 PM
"Traveling the Yiddishland" is a musical journey across the routes of the Yiddish song's history in the 20th century Eastern Europe– brought to the modern audiences through the author’s original field video recordings, live singing, playing, and electronics.
The program is a unique blend of music/ song performance, documentary, and storytelling. But most importantly, it is a multi-vectored dialog that creates a link between the modern audiences and the rich traditional heritage.
Despite its somewhat provocative title, “Traveling the Yiddishland” is a show that is culturally relevant for all audiences, regardless of their background and identities.
This visual musical show brings you to hear the songs that are the heartbeat of the living, not the dead. It exposes you to the warmth of the Yiddish word in the land of our hearts, Yiddishland.
