Chutzpah! Festival of International Jewish Performing Arts returns in 2021 with an exciting lineup of performances and stimulating conversations.

Old Friends by Tamara Micner

Join the Chutzpah! Festival's theatre works-in-progress series for a look at Tamara Micner's new solo performance piece, live from London.

Chutzpah! presents returning festival favourite and award-winning theatre artist Tamara Micner’s (Holocaust Brunch, What You're Missing) new solo show Old Friends about the things we can't get over, and how we actually can. It was a warm night in September 1981 when half a million people came out to see a "neighbourhood concert" that would go down in history: Simon & Garfunkel's Concert in Central Park. After splitting up more than a decade earlier, two beloved Jewish artists came together for one night and held everyone spellbound. Why couldn't they stay together? Why do I care so much? And why - in the midst of COVID and the climate crisis and all the racism - can I not stop listening to them?

Tamara is a celebrated writer, performer and theatre-maker in London England, who hails from Vancouver. Her work tends to look at the past in new ways – including the pre-gentrified East End of London, the Second World War/Holocaust, the postwar period, and experiences of living in their wake – to explore how we can see our past, present and future in ways which are liberating, healing and joyful.
