Vartn af Godot (Waiting for Godot in Yiddish).
When Vartn af Godot premiered with YiddishRep in NYC, The New Yorker proclaimed that “Beckett’s play may finally have found its mother tongue”. Now Vartn af Godot will occupy the fine salons of Dramaten on November 13-14. In this session, actors Shane Baker and Michael Wex discuss the play with Abbe Schulman, Chairman of the Yiddish Society in Stockholm and Lizzie Oved Scheja, Executive Director of Judisk Kultur i Sverige, the driving forces behind the project, as well as Irena Kraus, dramaturge at Dramaten. Moderator: Sarah Schulman.
Lizzie Oved Scheja is the founder and director of J! Judisk kultur i Sverige, an independent institution that implements high profile programs with prominent participants. Using Jewish perspectives as starting points, J! focuses on the universal aspects of Jewish culture and their relevance to contemporary society.
