Deborah Leiser-Moore will bring her multimedia performance piece, Cordelia: Mein Kindt, to Theater J as part of their first Incubator Series, December 23.

Inspired by Shakespeare's play King Lear, Cordelia: Mein Kindt is a duet for film and live body with original interviews on video between a contemporary Cordelia and her father, a Yiddish-speaking Holocaust survivor approaching the end of his time on earth. The work intersperses film clips of The Yiddish King Lear, starring Yiddish theatrical giant Jacob Gordon, which is regarded as ushering in the first era of Yiddish theater.
