Five Pieces of Paper – Stage Show
Stories my Hungarian grandmother refused to tell me and other family tales.
Due to covid19 all upcoming live shows are canceled.
An On-line version is in the making.
Created by Moti Buchboot, Directed by Moti Buchboot and Martha Gehman
This show was created in response to the 2017 Charlottesville riots at the University of Virginia by Moti Buchboot, an Israeli artist who moved to Los Angeles in the early 90. Moti a grandson of a Holocaust survivor, reveals lessons learned from his Hungarian grandmother who began her life’s journey in a village in Hungary, survived the Holocaust, and eventually settled in a small town in Israel. Told as a personal love narrative, this emotional rollercoaster unfolds through acting, Yiddish song, puppetry, storytelling, and on-stage baking. This spiritual ritual is meant to reveal and heal the trauma of a horrifying past.
