Yiddish Historically Informed Performance (YHIP) is the topic of the conference taking place this year as part of Yiddish Summer Weimar. To Yiddish Summer Weimar veterans it’s not news that dance is an essential part of musical culture. So it’s only logical that a tantshoyz (dance house) is part of this conference.
In our YHIP tantshoyz we’ll pay special attention to the historical sources of Yiddish dance and their interpretation. Scholars, musicians and dancers will demonstrate dances which we can then do together. This evening is an opportunity to delve deeply into the Yiddish dance tradition. We’ll also get a foretaste of the new Yiddish contemporary dance piece that premieres during YSW16 a few weeks later – Gilgul: Transformation – and of the Yiddish dance workshop.
With Walter Zev Feldman, Steve Weintraub, Andreas Schmitges, Alan Bern and others
