In collaboration with: Paulina Witaszczyk
THE 31ST JEWISH CULTURE FESTIVAL / KRAKOW 2022
In “Maiseh”, which is the Yiddish word for tale (מייסע), seven legends are passed on in the public space. These tales are vehicles to grapple with loss, misfortune, betrayal and broken hearts. They arm us with humor, hope, courage and love. They bring us together.
Between June 25th and July 3rd, artists from Israel, Germany and Poland tell their version of legends from Krakow – in performances, drawings, murals, sound installations, workshops, and letters. Listen to these stories as they unfold in the streets of Kazimierz
