Maslow, Sophie

 The Village I Knew. Yenta excerpt.

Music: Samuel Matlowsky and Gregory Tucker
(No permission or fees required, through special arrangement with the choreographer.)
Length: 3 minutes, 30 seconds
Costume: Peasant dress
Set: One chair
Notation: 1994, good quality, score unchecked
Consultancy: Required

Delightfully entertaining vignette about an Eastern European Yenta who visits her village Rabbi to voice a grievance and tells her life story in the process. Requires a female dancer who can communicate through movement and broad gesture. A technically demanding and difficult coordination exercise for a mature, comic performer. Training in the Graham technique would be helpful. A musical theater background would also help. A man is also needed in a non-dancing role.
