Event description

Description

'Longing Belonging and Balfour': a musical retelling of the 1917 Balfour Declaration story.

“Chai for All” is a classy multi-lingual group of musicians and storytellers. They flit between powerful new compositions using klezmer, Arabic folk & classical music, and Yiddish song. Old ballads of soulful lament and frantic dance tunes are interspersed with well-chosen readings, field recordings and vibrant storytelling.

There will be a FREE afternoon workshop from 4pm to 6pm at the same venue. This is an opportunity to explore the history and impact of the Balfour Declaration in more detail.

“Longing, Belonging & Balfour” is an evocative musical study of the Balfour Declaration of 1917 and it's continuing consequences for the Middle East, seen from Palestinian, Jewish and British perspectives. We highlight Britain’s critical and insidious role, and the unlikely partnership between the declaration's two principal architects – the languid aristocrat Arthur Balfour and the ardent Zionist Chaim Weizmann – and the misery inflicted on the Palestinians. Looking askance at the human story, the land tells its own tale.
