Tuesday, March 29th: Kultar’s Mime
This haunting production combines poetry, art, and theater to convey the story of the 1984 Delhi massacre through the frame of Russian Pogroms. The piece came to Northeastern’s Sacred Space last fall with incredible reviews, and is now playing at Boston’s Center for Jewish Culture at the Vilna Shul; a perfect opportunity if you missed the last performance. Actors portray a group of young Jewish artists struggling with the weight of remembering the 1903 Pogrom in Kishinev. Along their journey, they work their way through two poems describing in visceral detail the horrors of the Delhi massacre of Sikhs, allowing them to tell both stories of destruction that the world has largely forgotten.
The Vilna Shul, 18 Phillips Street. 7 – 9 pm. Free. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/kultars-mime-at-the-vilna-shul-in-boston-tickets-21384136528?aff=es2
Wednesday, March 30th: Theatre Nohgaku at BU

Noh, one of the world’s oldest continuing stage arts, combines dance, music, and costuming to tell age-old stories.
