The next performance in the Lied Center’s new Club/Carson series will be a truly unique experience. From Tel Aviv to Ramallah: A Beatbox Journey tells the story of a typical day in the lives of people on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. There will be two performances of From Tel Aviv to Ramallah on Thursday, February 15 at 7:00 and 9:30 pm.
Club/Carson is a new way to experience the performing arts. The Lied Center’s Johnny Carson Theater will be transformed into a cabaret with candlelight, intimate seating at cocktail tables, appetizers and drinks for purchase, and a nightclub atmosphere.
From Tel Aviv to Ramallah is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between a Jewish actor/beatbox, a religion scholar who happens to be his wife, and a Muslim video artist. The result is a spellbinding look at everyday people on both sides of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. “Yuri Lane uses hip-hop beats to pain a vibrant portrait of life in this area that’s both touching and disturbing, inspiring one minute and utterly heartbreaking the next,” said the San Francisco Examiner. The hip-hop theater piece also features live “sets” generated by video artist Sharif Ezzat, whose projections are timed to Lane’s beats.
