Discussion | Recovered archive of the Ghetto in Warsaw: experts discuss its contribution to our history


In April 1943, as Jewish fighters prepared an insurrection against their Nazi occupiers, a clandestine group of Jewish historians, writers, teachers, and students packed records of life under Nazi occupation into ten metal boxes and three milk cans, and buried them. Led by historian Emmanuel Ringelblum, the group, code-named Oyneg Shabes, had worked in secret for nearly three years to gather materials documenting all facets of Jewish life under Hitler. Most of the archive was recovered after the war from beneath the rubble of the Ghetto in Warsaw. Last year a permanent exhibition of the archive opened at the Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw. A feature-length film on it, Who Will Write Our History, is scheduled to for release in the fall. Two leading experts on the Oyneg Shabes archive, and on the history of Polish Jewry, Samuel Kassow and Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett, will discuss what the archive has contributed to our historical understanding and the heroic work of Ringelblum and his colleagues to deliver it. Kassow is the author of Who Will Write Our History? Emanuel Ringelblum, the Warsaw Ghetto, and the Oyneg Shabbes Archive, the 2007 book that inspired the film. Kirshenblatt-Gimblett is chief curator of the core exhibition at the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw. First come, first seated. Please arrive early.

Performance | Press Play Backwards: A Performance of Music, Spoken Word, and Theatre


Press Play Backwards is an opera for two improvisers, inspired by the ancient Greeks' concept of time, Chronos/Kairos, and the writings of the late Irish poet and author John O'Donohue. The piece explores both a collective and personal response to the creative being of visceral and physical memory. Press Play Backwards is written by Irish vocalist Lauren Kinsella in collaboration with the Brooklyn-based Austrian pianist Elias Stemeseder. The work is a cross-disciplinary music theatre piece that uses sung and spoken text, original composition, and stage movement directed by the New York-based artist, choreographer and dancer K.J Holmes. The premiere of this work marks the culmination of research and development over the last year and a half supported by Kinsella's Arts Foundation Fellowship

Tony winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Jitney, The Piano Lesson) directs a sumptuous new production of Othello. Set amid war and palace intrigue in the 17th-century Mediterranean, this classic drama about a noble Black Venetian general whose marriage is sabotaged by theater’s most infamous villain, Iago, remains Shakespeare’s most urgent and relevant tragedy today. A lush, romantic vision gives way to the violent tangle of love and jealousy, race and revenge in this must-see production. May 29-June 3; June 5-9; June 14-18; June 20-24.
