The show must go on
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.
