Featuring the best of the global Jewish culture scene, with music, theatre, film, visual arts, literature and more. Highlights include: Yemen Blues (Israel/NY), purveyors of high-octane world music fusion combining Yemenite, Middle Eastern and West African influences with jazz, blues and funk; the innovative “movement theatre” show The Corpse Bride, based on a classic Jewish folk tale; and the signature Ashkenaz Parade, transforming Harbourfront Centre into a swirling caravan of music, dance, theatre, stilt-walkers, and giant puppetry.
