“Silver Wedding” at the Green Theater
July 9 at 7pm
This exciting cabaret band specializes in suburban chanson. Their concerts are reminiscent to rowdy block parties. On July 9th, this kitsch musical performance by “Silver Wedding” will be a fun mx of comedy, theatre and music. As always, the band members will entertain with their charismatic hooliganism and showcase their best “musical scenarios” by combining motifs from folk, country French chanson and Dixieland. There band represents many instruments: accordion, tuba, trombone, guitar, drums, violin, cello and ukulele. The concert is expected to eventually transform into a real gypsy camp under the sway of the eccentric and enchanting lead songstress Benka.

“Ukrainian Decameron” is a bright nativity in which happiness and pain, laughter and tears, life and death are all intertwined. This play shows an unknown Ukraine that has its similarities, yet it is so unlike the country we know. The life of a Ukrainian village with its songs, jokes, and vodka collides with a different world, one where it is nothing special to talk to Death, converse with demons, or fly through the night sky. The play is memorable with its live orchestra, authentic songs, and unique staging. The viewer sits on the stage, facing where the audience would normally be, while the spectacle unfolds before them.
