We welcome theatre and music lovers, researchers of the Jewish history and culture, fans of photography and art, those of you who enjoy thematic walks and workshops. People who like to, from time to time, feel an air of nostalgia with a tiny hint of old days and those, who seek new experience, and follow the latest trends in art and culture.

We also encourage artists to send us interesting proposals. The Festival’s stages await!

Aktorka, reżyserka, organizatorka Festiwalu Kultury Żydowskiej, założycielka i prezes Fundacji Shalom, dyrektor Teatru Żydowskiego – Gołda Tencer.”

Wkrótce rusza Warszawa Singera!

„Festiwal przyjaciół”, tak o rozpoczynającym się 27 sierpnia Festiwalu Kultury Żydowskiej Warszawa Singera mówi dyrektor Fundacji Shalom, Gołda Tencer.

Singer3

Co roku pod koniec wakacji okolice placu Grzybowskiego odwiedza od 65 do 70 tysięcy osób, które chcą posłuchać muzyki klezmerskiej, obejrzeć spektakle teatralne, spróbować tradycyjnych potraw. To wszystko już po raz trzynasty umożliwia Fundacja Shalom. – W Teatrze nigdy nie piszę trzynastki, ale 12a – mówi Gołda Tencer. – Ten Festiwal jest tworzony z grona przyjaciół, a jego sercem był zawsze Teatr Żydowski. To serce pozostanie z nami, niezależnie od tego, gdzie będziemy grać. Bo wydarzenia festiwalowe odbywać się będą w wielu miejscach.

Jednym ze spektakli, które będą mogli obejrzeć widzowie są „Matki” w reżyserii Pawła Passiniego. – To antyspektakl o tym, że teatr czasami musi się potknąć, zamilknąć – informuje reżyser. – To wieczór, podczas którego mówimy o ludziach, którzy mieli dwie matki. Próbujemy doprowadzić do tego, by się spotkały. Słuchamy tych opowieści, mając na scenie trzy osoby, które przeżyły,którym się to udało.

Singer2

W tym roku odbędzie się również trzecia edycja Singer Jazz Festival, podczas którego wystąpi m.in. Włodzimierz Nahorny, jeden z filarów polskiego jazzu, od dawna towarzyszący warszawskiemu Singerowi. – To będzie mój koncert urodzinowy, niespodzianka i ja sam dowiem się w ostatniej chwili o tym, kto wystąpi – przekonuje muzyk. – Bardzo się cieszę, że ten Festiwal tak się rozwija, bo polski jazz na to zasługuje.

„Kuchnią mamy Soni”, czyli kulinarną częścią festiwalu, dowodzi Maciej Nowak, który zapewnia, że goście będą mogli nie tylko skosztować przysmaków żydowskich, ale również spotkać się z ekspertami i znawcami kuchni. Restauracje, biorące udział w konkursie na najlepszą potrawę, przygotowały specjalne menu. – Zachęcamy Państwa do odwiedzania tych restauracji i oddawania głosów na wybrane dania. Jurorzy również przyznają swoją nagrodę – zapewnia Maciej Nowak. – Grzybów będzie znów kojarzył się ze smakami żydowskimi.

Konferencja zapowiadająca tegoroczną edycję festiwalu odbyła się 18 sierpnia w klubie festiwalowym Pardon, to tu.

Guest appearance: Elżbieta Ficowska, Joanna Sobolewska-Pyz, Romuald Jakub Weksler-Waszkinel

Together with the adult children from the baskets, the authors of the show will attempt to be their mothers in the very moment just before they make up their minds. In those moments, they search for the answer to their questions about identity, continuity, duty. Uneasy questions that hurt and jostle in the word “mother” and call for attention.

This is because, thanks to the courtesy and friendliness of the Directorate of the theater, we move here the festival events, which were planned to take place in the Jewish Theatre building.

Teatr Kwadrat is located about 3-4 minutes walk from the Grzybowski Square (in the direction of the station Metro Świętokrzyska).

Dear Friends of the Shalom Foundation and Warsaw’s Singer Festival!

The recent developments in the Jewish Theatre’s situation that we have been watching have also affected us because as you well know our office is located in the theatre’s building.
 
You may be wondering what will happen next since the place that was so generously presenting many of the festival’s concerts and performances has been closed?!
 
We would like to let you know that our Festival will take place according to the planned time schedule.
 
Very soon, we will be informing you about the addresses of the events moved from the Jewish Theatre and we will present this year’s Singer’s Warsaw program.
 
 
However, we are kindly asking for your patience as in the coming days we will be very busy organizing the move.
 
In this difficult time, your support as well as help and assistance offers sent to us from across Poland (and other countries) are truly invaluable.
 
Thank you for everything,

Inauguration of the Singer Jazz Festival – Sefardix trio

“Bracia Oleś nie próbują nikogo i niczego imitować. Grają jak rasowi współcześni muzykanci na swoich instrumentach, które czują doskonale. Jorgos Skolias nadaje całości sznyt grecki” pisał Jacek Hawryluk.

Sefardix: Oleś Brothers & Jorgos Skolias

Ci trzej wspaniali muzycy to właśnie Sefardix trio. Muzyka zespołu  laureata Folkowego Fonogramu Roku 2013 Polskiego Radia – to klimatyczna fuzja śpiewanej po grecku muzyki żydowskiej, jazzu, metafizycznych wokaliz rodem z Azji oraz instrumentalnej wirtuozerii pełnej kulturowych odniesień. Artyści wykraczają poza stereotypowe traktowanie głosu i instrumentów, poszerzając paletę brzmieniową wykonywanej muzyki. Emocje i energia płynąca ze sceny, porywają słuchaczy zarówno na dużych festiwalach, jak i kameralnych koncertach.

Koncert Sefardix trio, prezentującego swoją najnowszą płytę „Maggid”, odbędzie się w poniedziałek, 29 sierpnia o godz. 21.00 w Synagodze im. Nożyków.

(Polish) Osip Mandelsztam w interpretacji szczecińskiego zespołu Sklep z Ptasimi Piórami

Historia powstania programu koncertu rozpoczęła się ponad 30 lat temu. Jej początki sięgają czasu stanu wojennego, kiedy to szczeciński Teatr Kana w 1982 roku wystawił spektakl „Księga…”. Spektakl był grany poza cenzurą i mimo braku jakichkolwiek oficjalnych informacji o datach i miejscach przedstawienia, ściągał tłumy…

ulica mandelsztama

Muzykę do wierszy Osipa Mandelsztama wykorzystanych w pamiętnym przedstawieniu skomponował Ryszard Leoszewski, wówczas jeden z pierwszych aktorów Teatru Kana, a obecnie kompozytor, wokalista, pedagog i jedna z najciekawszych postaci kulturalnego Szczecina.

Teraz, będąc bogatszym o doświadczenia właściwe jego pokoleniu, odnalazł w poezji Mandelsztama nie tyle cierpienie (choć i ono dało o sobie znać), co jasną stronę ludzkiej duszy. Iskierki prawdziwego człowieczeństwa, okruchy szlachetności, wiarę w czystość intencji, szacunek i bliskość drugiej osoby – zwyczajną prawdę i uczciwość.

Koncert odbędzie się 31 sierpnia 2016 o godz. 19.00 w Klubie Mamele.

(Polish) Trzej kantorzy na rozpoczęcie festiwalu

Niedzielny koncert kantorów to już tradycja Festiwalu Warszawa Singera. Jest to jednocześnie uroczysta inauguracja Festiwalu, na którą swoje podwoje otwiera dla szerszej publiczności Synagoga im. Nożyków w Warszawie.
