As part of the Week of Remembrance (Woche des Gedenkens) at Goldbekhaus Hamburg, we will present an Evening of Short Stories by Nobel Prize-winning author Isaac Bashevis Singer. Directed by Joana O’Neil. Read by Rebecca Garron. Accompanied on the piano by Paul Baeyertz. This evening is free of charge and will be shown live on the Goldbekhaus YouTube Channel and for 6 months thereafter. The link will be published here shortly.

Over 3,000 years ago Judaism emerged as one of the world’s religions and developed living traditions, ways of life, its own philosophy and culture. Isaac Bashevis Singer (1902-1991) has written many stories about the life of the Jews. On this evening, Couch Theatre will celebrate Singer’s work and let us partake in Jewish culture. Rebecca Garron reads some of his short stories, including the beloved ZLATEH THE GOAT, accompanied musically by pieces by Jewish composers, interpreted on the piano by Paul Baeyertz. The stories are in English and do not require any particularly demanding language skills.

Vor über 3.000 Jahren entstand das Judentum als eine der Weltreligionen und entwickelte lebendige Traditionen, Lebensweisen, eine eigene Philosophie und Kultur. Isaac Bashevis Singer (1902-1991) hat viele Geschichten über das Leben der Juden
geschrieben. An diesem Abend zelebriert das Couch Theatre das Werk Singers und lässt uns teilhaben an der jüdischen Kultur. Rebecca Garron liest einige Geschichten vor, inkl. ZLATEH THE GOAT, musikalisch begleitet von Stücken jüdischer Komponisten, interpretiert am Klavier von Paul Baeyertz. Die Texte sind in englischer Sprache und setzen keine besonders anspruchsvollen Sprachkenntnisse voraus.
