*POSTPONED* Bubble Schmeisis
April 4 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm£10
Welcome to the steam baths. In fact to a schvitz – a Jewish steam bath where old men go to wash, relax, complain and rejuvenate, to exchange jokes and gossip and to swap bubbemeisis.
Writer and street performer Nick Cassenbaum invites you into the warmth of the Canning Town Schvitz, East London’s last authentic bath house. Amongst the steam and ritual Nick will take you on a journey to find the place he belongs. Schlepping through summer camps, barber shops and Spurs games. Will he find what he was looking for?
Bubble Schmeisis is full of intimate and personal true stories about identity, home and getting schmeised (washed) by old men
