How often do you get to see a one-woman comedy cabaret featuring Esperanto? Thanks to Margot Przymierska, you now can! Wesele/ Wedding is an immersive cabaret about the last Polish-English wedding before the borders close, told by a real life Polish wedding emcee from Białystok, the birthplace of Ludoviko Zamenhof... who happens to feature in the show.
This collage of integration stories, raunchy wedding rituals and disco polo sing-alongs, peppered with Polish and Esperanto, dismantles (or perpetuates?) the East European stereotypes and asks whether popular culture can bring people together. The show is supported by the Arts Council England, Polish Cultural Institute and UCL Festival of Culture.
You can see the show on Friday, July 19 at Bedford Fringe. There's another showing on Saturday, July 20.
Some of our friends have already seen it. They seem to have enjoyed themselves!
