Sacha Yanow presents "Cherie Dre"
NYC-based performance artist and actor Sacha Yanow's new solo performance is a meditation on desire, belonging, and matrilineal legacy. A fraught romance between showgirl Cherie Dre and Yanow's grandmother, Shirley, unfolds alongside the rise and fall of the legendary Concord Resort Hotel in Upstate New York. Through movement, text, and music, Yanow creates an intimate history of the Jewish Borscht Belt, mental illness, cultural assimilation, political repression, and gender trouble, from the Bronx to the Catskills.
