Join a supportive, virtual community of diverse Jews through a series of theater-based workshops to focus on the meaning of Jewish community, how we build it, and how it has transformed during COVID-19. In each workshop we will explore methods of telling and theatricalizing stories, including writing personal narratives, creating theater through interviews, and collaborative creation - known as devised theater.
Participants are invited to come to individual workshops or the whole series, and all workshops will be free to attend. Artists of all levels and ages are welcome, including first time theater makers. Co-facilitated by myself and Boston based educator and facilitator Rebecca Powell.
Dates: Wednesdays 7-9pm starting 10/28
