  • By admin 
  • Category: Blog 

There is room to explore between the lines, says Côté, and dance is very good at evoking emotions and atmospheres that can rival the power of words. Hamlet is one of dramatic literature’s most complex and challenging roles, which likely explains why classical actors dream of playing him. Not just actors but dancers, too; including […]

“Yiddish Glory”: A Singing Archive of Jewish History

  • By admin 
  • Category: Bio 

In the late 1990s, the librarians of Ukrainian National Library in Kiev found a number of unnamed boxes with handwritten Yiddish documents in a semi-restricted section of the depository. It turned out to be the long presumed lost archive of the Folklore

Department of the Cabinet for Studies of Jewish Culture. The research team led by ethnomusicologist Moisei Beregovsky, spent World War II collecting Yiddish music, stories and jokes from Jews, all amateur performers, living and dying in the USSR – in ghettos, working at the home front or serving in the Red Army. These archival materials, namely songs often preserved without tunes, were recently brought back to life in an academic and artistic project ‘’Yiddish Glory’’, which included a release of a Grammy-nominated album, a series of lecture-concerts and large-scale performances worldwide. The article authored by the project’s creators discusses the process of textual and historical analysis of the songs, imagining missing tunes and analysis of Soviet censorship’s concerns. It also discusses how contemporary international audiences made sense of this material.
