Rediscovering the past through the present: a theatrical experiment

Lost & Found Projectis an experimental theatre production formed by a cast  of 10 Russian-Jewish actors born in the 70s-80s in the former Soviet Union (FSU) who immigrated to the U.S. with their families. The goal of the project is to give young Russian-Jewish actors an opportunity to become more aware of their family stories through a process of personal research and investigation. 

Sophia Romma, Writer- featured in The  NY Times  and an alumnus of NYU Tisch and Gorky Literary Institute,  is forming the play based on a collection of the actors' personal narratives and family interviews. 

Ben Sargent, Director-  a graduate from the MHAT Institute in Moscow and founder of Studio Six, a theatre group based on the Russian dramatic school model, is working with the Lost &Found troupe on transforming their narratives into a theatrical production for the stage.  

The final production will include an element of experimental theatre, movement, and voice techniques.  The play will be presented in snapshots, illustrating a dialogue between the past and the present, where parallels will be drawn from the actors’ affecting environments.

We live in a modern melting pot, where people migrate from one part of the world to another.. We hope that our stories will inspire other young New Yorkers, regardless of where they come from, to open up their photo albums and ask questions and search for their family stories...

Lost & Found is sponsored by CWW a project of COJECO supported by the UJA-Federation of NY and Genesis Philanthropy Group.  In Collaboration with The East End Temple and Folksbiene Yiddish Theatre 

Lost & Found Launch Event will take place March 8th in NYC.
