The Roots of Paula Vogel’s Indecent
Yiddish Theatre: The Foundation of Modern Culture
The aim of the lecture is to offer a comprehensive historical overview of the development of the Yiddish Theater as a social and literary expression of the Yiddish language which served as the basis for much of modern mainstream culture. The lecture is designed to explore the relationship of Yiddish theater arts to the literary, social and intellectual world in which it thrived. It offers an in-depth examination of how the Yiddish language adapted from a spoken to a literary to a theatrical mode of expression and influenced the birth of the modern Theatre in America.
