Subject: Artistic Laboratory of Research and Creation for a New Yiddish 
Theater From September to November in NYC

Company Les Haim in association with the Itinerant Chulent Yiddish Theater 
Workshopis looking for Actors, Musicians, Dancers, Singers, Visual 
Artists, Writers deeply committed to Jewish/Yiddish artistic creation in 
order to create an Artistic Laboratory of Research and Creationfor a New 
Yiddish Theater From September to November in NYC Led by Milna Kartowski, 
actress, singer and writer from Paris.

Using the techniques of Grotowski and anthropological theater for a 
multidisciplinary and physical theater together with an organic process of 
improvisation, we'll work on what could be a new poetic Yiddish theater at 
the crossroads of art and identity. Breaking boundaries and stereotypes, 
how do we react to Yiddishkayt today  Which first impulses come out? How 
does the musicality of Yiddish affect our body and lead us to 
dance-theater, visual expression, music composition? How can we create the 
chance for open poetic spaces in order to inspire a new Yiddish theatrical 
adventure with profound artistic expectations and hopes?

Please send your resume and a letter describing your artistic background 
to: milenakartowski at gmail.com
