(Bedford) Wesele/Wedding: a cabaret with Esperanto

Event details

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 Saturday, July 20 at Bedford Fringe. There's an earlier showing on Friday, July 19.

Some of our friends have already seen it. They seem to have enjoyed themselves!

It's also possible to see it on:

Friday 7 June, 7.30pm at Rich Mix, London
Sat 6 July at Blackfriars Theatre, Boston
