“Into the Melting Pot”: Screening & Discussion

30 May @ 19:00 - 20:15

From £10
Manchester Jewish Museum

An amazing concert play exploring songs and stories of women against the backdrop of 1492 Spain.

Spain, 1492. At twilight on her final night in Seville, a Jewish woman lights the lamps. She is being forced to leave Spain and set sail for an uncertain future. Her story echoes down the ages to the personal stories of people affected by politics and war today. She tunes into the voices of a community of Jewish, Christian and Muslim women from across the Spanish peninsula.

Down the centuries, women’s stories of integration, love, the rich cultural heritage of the Spanish peninsula and racial intolerance are played out to a soundtrack of plaintive Sephardic songs and lively medieval music, with full staging and stunning lighting. Be transported back to 15th century Seville!

Join us for a screening in our beautiful synagogue of Into the Melting Pot, a concertplay developed by groundbreaking theatre and music company The Telling. The film will be followed by a talk with creator Clare Norburn and flautist and teacher Sarah Atter, discussing the project and their recent workshops with the museum’s Songwriting Group.
