Event description

Description

NEW TIME! Show starts at 1:00 PM


Asya Zlatina and Dancers bring an award-winning contemporary ballet story from Fringe Arts to Northeast Philadelphia. Set to the immediately-recognizable melodies of the Barry Sisters, Mamaloshen* translates humor and humility, irony and love, sarcasm and suffering embodied in Yiddish culture into universal language of dance.

This work's significance becomes more apparent if one realizes that there may be fewer than 2000 Yiddish speakers** left in Russia, where the choreographer is from.

This show is created in memory of Asya's grandparents.


* meaning "mother tongue", or Yiddish, spoken by older generation and not always understood by the immigrant children
