About this show

In this warm and intimate story, a young girl learns all about her Russian Jewish grandmother through the trinkets Grandma had collected throughout her life. Each one of those tsotchkes--a bag of pennies, a box of chess pieces, an old black shoe, and a glass ring--magically transport the girl into adventurous stories of her grandma's flight from Russia to America. These stories of traditions that sustain families from generation to generation are told primarily through energetic dance and movement.
