Michael Rubenfeld - Co-Founder of FestivALT

- listen to his incredible journey and great presentation (2nd December 2020).

In 2012, Canadian Jewish theatre artist, Michael Rubenfeld suggested to his mother that, together, they go to Poland “for the first time” and see the country from which their family came and the places where they survived. This trip was to serve as research for a play which they would ultimately turn into a much larger project, resulting in Michael now living in Kraków and co-founding FestivALT, an alternative arts festival.

In this exclusive ASPJ presentation, Michael Rubenfeld shares this journey and why he believes that Poland is such an important contemporary space for the Jewish people.

The ASPJ thanks all those whose hard work and effort made our second, COVID-enforced, online event so successful.

We sincerely thank Michael Rubinfeld for agreeing to share his experiences and the motivations behind FestivALT.
