In light of Covid:19 we had to change some of our plans, some of our plans have changed so we started to create more online content to reach out to our community.
Our latest project - “You’ve Got a Friend” in solidarity with Black Lives Matter is a new initiative conceived and produced by The JEWish Cabaret in solidarity with Black Lives Matter (BLM) will go live soon!
Singers from the West End and around the world come together in an anti-racism video to say “You’ve Got a Friend” in 22 different languages, and raise money for the Jewish Council for Racial Equality.
As the world continues to struggle with the new reality presented by COVID-19, it is crucial that action for racial justice and support for Black Lives Matter is sustained. This initiative seeks to stress that Black lives still matter and will always matter, and that allyship and active anti-racism must be an ongoing and long-term commitment. There is more work that needs to be done, and this work needs to be supported by people from all backgrounds.
The video has been conceived by The JEWish Cabaret, in collaboration with the following talented individuals:
Artistic Director: Shar Shamai
Musical Director: Inga Davis Rutter
Sound: Shar Shamai & Stephanos Costantinos
Cinematography: Aaron Benafshi
Producers: Shar Shamai, Anna Oggero, David Djemal, Ashley Racov, & Alejandro Martín Aparicio.
