This year’s the third to see Budapest’s largest cultural festival on Hanukkah’s eight days with the cooperation of the public places, places of entertainment and cultural centers of the Jewish district.
The holiday of light coincides with Christmas this year, so the myriad of programs will be more colorful than ever. There’s Chrismukkah fair, street programs, musical programs from world music to electronica, exhibitions, city tours and reading nights.
The aim of the organizers this year is to draw the attention to the unfortunate happenings and decisions related to the cultural sphere (and thus the district especially). They intend to create such a cooperation that shows how significant role spaces of creation and even places of entertainment play in the life of the district, and that craftmanship and artistic life has a great influence, too.
The programs include:
20:00 “Hét a hétben” (=seven in the week) seven theatrical projects in Sirály / writer: Sarah Gancher, who, with her Hungarian partners, invites her audience for walks during which the familiar streets get a new interpretation
15:00 Walk in the Jewish district / Progressive and creative initiatives and introduction of workshops with Dóri Szegő
11:00-19:00 Chrismukkah Holiday Bazaar in Fogasházban / the great joint celebration of Christmas and Hanukkah / day-long bazaar with industrial designers, designers, book publishers and theatrical groupsegész napos bazár iparművészek, designerek, könykiadók, színházi társulatok részvételével.
