and renew your sense of self and identity through movement with Master
MIME Grigory Gurevich/GRIGUR! GRIGUR’s unique movement technique is based
on the work of such giants of Russian Theater as Meierhold and Michael Chekhov,
contemporaries of Stanislavsky, and can’t be learned anywhere else. Students of
all ages will be inspired and empowered through this easy and enjoyable process
of learning coordination and articulation of body muscles. This eye opening
workshop, perfect for anyone interested in acting, dancing or singing, or
simply staying physically and mentally active, will be taught in both to adults

and making order out of chaos through dramatic play and movement, storytelling
and visual arts, and everyone will get to know each other at Beit-Cafe
Firebird/JAR-Птица quest artist Mr. Gurevich (stage name
GRIGUR), was strongly influenced by one of the most celebrated contemporary
mimes, Marcel Marceau, with whom he shared a close friendship. Creator of the
first professional Pantomime Theater in Russia, GRIGUR and his company
performed extensively throughout Russia with such world-renowned actors as
Arkadyi Raikin, Michail Zhvanetskyi and Rachlin, Director of Musikhall. His
company participated in numerous movies and theatre productions, including,
among others, MOZART AND SALIERI and LADY AND THE HOOLIGAN. GRIGUR
choreographed movement for theatre productions such as STRIDER (story of the
Horse) in the Gorky Theatre in Leningrad, Russia, and BLUE BIRD by Offenbach. His company has performed
extensively in Denmark, Germany, Canada,
Finland, Bulgaria, as well as the United States, and received several Grants from
the New Jersey State Council for the Arts.
Don't miss this rare
chance to meet and learn with a personal friend of Marcel Marceau and
collaborator of Arkadi Raikin, while enjoying the company of other Russian
Speaking adults of the Upper East Side, and
giving your children a gift of studying Jewish concepts in an age-appropriate,
fun and art-filled Russian-speaking environment.
At the beginning of a new year, as we start our yearly Torah cycle again from Genesis/Bereshit/Beginning, let’s take this opportunity to pause and reflect on these fundamental questions.
Lunch will be served at the end of the session.
