Human beatbox and vocal magician Yuri Lane will present his "coolly extraordinary" travelogue of peace, From Tel Aviv to Ramallah: A Beatbox Journey. Part hip-hop performance, part street-wise documentary, Lane’s play weaves a vox-pop tapestry of Palestinian and Israeli voices into a mosaic of the Middle East.

A Rockin' Musical Play... without Instruments: Yuri Lane

From an extraordinarily heated subject, that of Israeli/Palestinian relations,
writer-director Rachel Havrelock and performer Yuri Lane have fashioned a coolly extraordinary 55 minutes – Chicago Tribune

Against a backdrop of live visuals by Sharif Ezzat, muezzin calls and Tel Aviv traffic, the lives of Khalid and Amir—one Israeli, one Palestinian—progress and intertwine with a hip-hop beat despite being separated by military border crossings. Lane’s performances have been featured in top media outlets including USA Today, New York Times, and Chicago Tribune, and in music magazines, Afropop Worldwide and Pop Matters. Nominated for a Helen Hayes Award for best new play, the show has enjoyed runs in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Baltimore, Atlanta, across the US and internationally, including in Helsinki, London and Jerusalem. Yuri Lane continues to electrify audiences worldwide.

The program is part of the Osher Marin JCC’s series, “Salaam, Shalom: Speaking of Peace” series, events designed to increase interfaith dialogue and understanding.
