FolksbieneRU is the Russian Division of The National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene.
This unique performing arts platform was created to explore the rich heritage and complex identities of the Russian-speaking Jewish community. Using theatre and instruments of the performing arts to boldly venture into the matters of the heart, FolksbieneRU programs help participants find their own creative expression, connect with earlier generations, and deepen their Jewish identity.
RU’s robust programming includes original theatrical productions, concerts and festivals, workshops and interactive events. A special emphasis is placed on stewarding younger generations into Jewish life by bringing teaching artists to camps, schools and community organizations.
Among its programs, productions, and events:
- Teen Drama Workshop
- Edges & Borders
- Lost & Found Project
- Family Musical: The King of Chelm
- Borsch Ball
- Theater Productions: Doroga (2011), Covers (2013), KNOCK (2015), Old New Year (2017)
…and many others.
