Lost in Lvov
May 9, 2015
3 PM & 6 PM
West Hollywood Library Auditorium
A biographical, multimedia storytelling experience, Lost in Lvov opens a time capsule of memories, secrets and precious experiences of the Belman sisters, three sisters who immigrate to America from the U.S.S.R before and after Perestroika. Their memories left behind implanted in pockets and shelves of their brains, burned into memories of photos they set on fire, and smuggled in their hearts their new homes, with Soviet trinkets and recipes they passed down to their grandchildren. Intimate winks and glimpses of their past lives wander as they reinvent themselves in America. The stories are interwoven with breaks of dance and music at any moment, when words can no longer express emotion and time stops.
A multimedia solo performance with live music from Los Angeles's premiere European band, Paris Chansons, including: Julia Kantor, Jacob Kantor and Endre Balogh.
