Kitka and marionettes peform in LA Dec. 3, free

World City at the Music Center invites you to discover the rich cultures of Eastern Europe. Audiences of all ages will enjoy this FREE performance and art-making workshop series that celebrates artistic traditions from around the globe.

Kitka (Voice, Eastern Europe)

Using only pure unaccompanied voices, Kitka is an all women ensemble who produces songs using Eastern European vocal techniques that have been distilled over centuries. Performing Wintersongs, the repertoire is drawn from many lands with melodies, rhythms and harmonies to warm and cheer you through this wintry time of the year.

Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre (Puppetry, Czechoslovakia)

From the Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre, Vít Horejs performs Winter Tales, a one-man show of Czech fairy tales with a cast of century-old marionettes. Replete with mountain wizards, clever village maidens, witches and spirits, Mr. Horejs learned these stories from his father and grandmother in his hometown of Prague.
