Key facts

Genre: Event with live subtitles

Synopsis

Whitechapel Noise tells new tales of an immigrant culture in flux through the abundant Yiddish couplets written in pre-first world war London. Heartbreaking ballads of children in poverty and strident union songs depict hard lives and the struggle for improved conditions. Hilarious music hall songs with edgy lyrics display the changing nature of sexual relationships, marital disharmony and abuse. Satirical verse pinpoints how immigrants grappled with modernising religious practice, and they tell these stories with humour, intensity, and passion.

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext working with MyClearText.
