Scratch@JW3

Arts & Culture

Scratch night @ JW3 is your chance to experience exciting new theatre and performance in its early stages of development, including a chance to help these artists shape their work. Oh, and we’ll throw in a glass of wine too. Because we’re nice like that. This event will present extracts from work by Tracy Kashi, Tamara Micner and Emily Rose, who explore a range of stories about memory, survival and repatriation. Join us for a thrilling insight into three different performances at the very beginning of their journey.


My Cancer Gap Year  
 
It turns out you’re never too old to have a gap year. Singer Tracy Kashi embarks on an uplifting musical show about her experience with breast cancer from shock diagnosis and treatment through to tentative recovery. 
 
With live music, comedy and candid advice on how to survive an unexpected cancer gap year, join this Crouching Diva as she talks about her Hidden Cancer in My Cancer Gap Year. 
  
Written and performed by Tracy Kashi, with music by Joe Perkins. 

Tracy Kashi: 
 
‘A beautiful and unique voice….stunning’ -KNEWYU.COM 
 
‘Vocally impressive…and very funny indeed…’ -THE STAGE 


Holocaust Brunch   

This event will be BSL-interpreted

Meet Bluma and Isaac Tischler, Polish-born Jews who meet in Tajikistan during the Second World War, whilst studying medicine. 

Theatre maker, Tamara Micner, draws on their memoir and oral history, leading you through their journey to Canada via Munich, Vienna and Wrocław during the de-Nazification period. 

She asks, how can we honour the histories we inherit whilst breaking free from them? And can we recover from the Holocaust? 

A new solo show exploring our relationship to this history and memory through comedy and bagels. 

 

Tamara Micner: 
 
‘A laugh-out-loud snapshot of family dynamics.’ –Vancouver Presents (What You’re Missing) 
 
 
The Repatriot  
 
Amy’s life in New York was slammed shut when her visa was denied. Now she’s back in her family home in High Barnet and can’t get out of bed. Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Sukkot roll by as we see the world through Amy’s musical theatre reality: her bedroom, the inescapable sounds of her family and narrow portals back to her old self in New York via the internet. Will she get her life together by Chanukah? The Repatriot  is written by Emily Rose and directed by Adam Lenson. 

Emily Rose: 
 
‘Some of the most creative music and clever lyrics I’ve experienced in live theatre’ – 730 Review (The Inconvenient Miracle) 
 
Adam Lenson: 
 
‘A fantastically witty, mischievous musical. Wasted manages to be a lot of fun and gives the Brontë legend a mischievous new spin.’ — The Guardian
