      Hello everyone,

      International arts organisation Dash Arts has an upcoming music theatre performance at JW3 London (and via live stream) later this month, Songs for Babyn Yar, which I thought you might be interested in. Here’s some info about the production:

      80 years after the massacre of 33,000 Jews in Babyn Yar in Kyiv, three Ukrainian musicians journey into their shared history. Together they explore the legacy of a tragedy that has never been fully commemorated, through Yiddish and Ukrainian folk songs, poetry, storytelling and survivors’ testimonies:

      The production takes place at JW3 in London on Sunday 21 November 7.30pm and will also be live-streamed online. Tickets are £15 for the in-person performance and £5 for the live stream.

      I do hope some of you are able to make it!
