Out of the Shadows: Rediscovering Jewish music and theatre

10-17 September 2017

In the last of our international festivals, Performing the Jewish Archive presents a week-long celebration of music and theatre by Jewish artists of the twentieth century, pieces that have been neglected, forgotten and even thought lost forever, but now rediscovered via the work of the project team.

We are proud to feature performances with such major partners as the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, Cape Town Holocaust Centre, the Tygerberg Children’s Choir, students and staff at Stellenbosch and Cape Town universities and the University of the Western Cape, the Gardens and Sea Point Synagogue choirs, and both the Cape Town and the Endler (stellenbosch) Concert Series.

Join us for an exciting and moving week of art, discovery, and stories from the archive of Jewish culture.

The following dates are subject to change. The will be confirmed soon.
