The show must go on

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS - BY JC RE­PORTER

THE IS­RAELI the­atre com­pany whose per­for­mances at the Ed­in­burgh Fringe were can­celled be­cause of pro-Pales­tinian protests have thanked the com­mu­nity for sav­ing their UK tour.

The Zion­ist Fed­er­a­tion, Is­raeli em­bassy and re­gional com­mu­ni­ties ral­lied round to find the com­pany new venues to per­form its hip-hop opera, The City.

Arik Es­het, In­cu­ba­tor’s artis­tic direc­tor, said: “We felt crushed when our Ed­in­burgh show was can­celled. But we were de­lighted that the Jewish com­mu­nity sup­ported us. It’s been a happy end­ing to a dread­ful sit­u­a­tion.”

In­cu­ba­tor per­formed last week at the Mac­cabi leisure cen­tre in Glas­gow, where it was pre­sented with a cheque for £3,500 by Glas­gow Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Coun­cil pres­i­dent, Paul Mor­ron.

It has ap­peared at the JW3 cul­tural cen­tre in Lon­don this week, and will per­form at the Makor cul­tural cen­tre in Leeds at the week­end.
