Yom Hashoah 2018

Monday 22nd October 2018

Wednesday 11th April 2018
https://www.jmi.org.uk/event/yomhashoah2018

We interview Director Katharina Reinthaller and Programmer Eva Burke.

First performed eighty years ago, Bertolt Brecht’s chilling one-act play, The Jewish Wife, is a chronicle of everyday German life at the dawn of the Nazi regime. As the Third Reich tightens its grip, relationships contort and fear and suspicion penetrate every layer of society.

Katharina Reinthaller directs this exclusive performance with actors:
Susanne Fiore and Peter Halpin
plus pianist Ilan Lazarus.
Followed by a short Yom Hasho’ah ceremony led by Rabbi Roni Tabick and singer Aaron Isaac.

The Wolf Of Baghdad
Monday 11th December
https://www.jmi.org.uk/event/the-wolf-of-baghdad

London-based musician Carol Isaacs, also known as cartoonist The Surreal McCoy, has created The Wolf Of Baghdad, an audio-visual project that traces her Iraqi-Jewish family’s memories of their lost homeland. A graphic memoir with its own musical soundtrack by new Judeo-Arabic ensemble 3Ayin, excerpts from the work in progress will be performed at the Laydeez Do Comics event on Monday December 11th 2017.

3Ayin are Daniel Jonas (Los Desterrados), multi-instrumentalist and vocals; Keith Clouston (Rivers Of Babylon), oud; Guy Schalom (Baladi Blues Ensemble and Hamsa), percussion; Carol Isaacs, accordion (London Klezmer Quartet and Hamsa). Repertoire is taken from the music the Jews of Iraq would have been familiar with – from songs by the Al Kuwaiti brothers to piyyutim (Jewish liturgical poems).
