‘anachnu Kan’ to Perform in NY

Download PDF for this date

“Anachnu Kan” (We Are Here), the world-famous troupe of Israeli-Russian singers, dancers and musicians, will give a concert of Russian, Israeli and Jewish folk dancing and singing in New York at three performances at Carnegie Hall on April 10, 12 and 23. They will give their fourth performance at the Avery Fisher Hall on April 20.

“Anachnu Kan,” a company of 105 singers, dancers, musicians and actors, originated as spontaneous troupes throughout the Soviet Union. Forbidden to perform, they emigrated to Israel and with government help formed the present organization. Following their New York engagements, they will appear at the Servantino Festival at the invitation of the Mexican government. In 1976 they were the star attraction at the International Convention for Soviet Jews in Brussels. Nava Bodinger, who heads Isra Art Productions, is sponsoring the “Anachnu Kan” tour in America.
