Undzer Stetel Brent
Noga's final performance for her MA at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. This piece is a result of a year long practice based researched followed by a collaboration with the following artists:
Barry Davis (UK)
Yusuf Joe Legwabe (South Africa)
Shahd Abusalama (Gaza-Palestine)
The performance is a mix of music, drama and media with a strong political message . It revisits the song ‘Undzer Shtetl Brent’ with a new approach; exploring the song’s meaning with three distinctive collaborators from different backgrounds and conflict areas. It examines the concepts of fire, immense tragedy and the passive observers described in the song, looking at each collaborator’s, as well as my own, relationship to these concepts. This musical collaboration investigates the questions of how different individuals can interpret and identify with this song, considering the perspective of their own political and cultural backgrounds, and how these different backgrounds are present in their artistic voices.
