Lemez Lovas of Oi Va Voi will direct guest musicians Moshikop and Rohan
Kriwaczek in a live performance of a specially devised new score for East
and West. In Sidney M. Goldin and Ivan Abramson’s silent movie (1923),
streetwise New York flapper Mollie (Molly Picon) travels to her cousin’s
wedding in a traditional Polish shtetl.
Lovas, Moshikop and Kriwaczek’s new score takes us from traditional klezmer
to contemporary electronica, from vaudeville to breakbeat. As love blossoms
between East and West, and the musical narrative unfolds, traditional and
modern worlds are brought into collision. Score is irreverent and highly
entertaining. A night not to be missed.
There will be an open rehearsal for students and young people in the day on
19th October. Please contact the JCC for more information.
