YIVO Yiddish Club: Yiddish Puppetry
Hosted By: YIVO
Nu, vilst redn a bisele yidish? Yiddish enthusiasts the world over, join us this month for YIVO Yiddish club hosted by Shane Baker. The session will take place in English and be liberally peppered with Yiddish. Attendees need not know any Yiddish to attend, though some familiarity with the language is highly recommended.
This session features director, designer and puppeteer Jenny Romaine. Romaine is the co-founder and artistic director of the OBIE winning Great Small Works visual theater collective, the music director of Jennifer Miller’s CIRCUS AMOK and artist in residence at Milk Not Jails and Inside Change. This conversation will focus on her work with Yiddish puppetry, and will also include special guest Eddy Portnoy, whose scholarly work on Zuni Maud and Yosl Cutler was one of the inspirations for Great Small Works’ Muntergang and Other Cheerful Downfalls.
