Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute (LHPAI) presents In the Land of Rain & Salmon: Jewish Voices of the Northwest: 1880-1920, Sunday, June 2. Coordinated by Washington State Jewish Historical Society, the event takes place at LHPAI, which was originally the Chevra Bikur Cholim synagogue.
“Imagine hearing your grandfather’s voice for the first time in 30 years telling you what it was like to take a boat from the old country,” said Lisa Kranseler, executive director of the Washington State Jewish Historical Society. “Or maybe listening to your cousin talk about borrowing money to open a store…You can experience these moving moments during a live performance that will take you into the lives of early Jewish pioneers in the state of Washington.” Tickets can be purchased here.
And on Tuesday, June 11, Budo Dance Theater from Osaka, Japan take you on a magical journey with Tabi Tama-Snaky Spirit. Written and directed by Majinhunter Mitsurugi and choreographed by Niranjan, Tabi Tama is short for “tabisuru tamashi” or “traveling soul.” The performance is at Langston Institute. Tickets can be purchased here.
