The Judith Project, produced by Well of Wills, is a yearlong community art project designed to activate rebel in us all by adapting the myth of Judith through theatrical storytelling, and by relating the personal stories and shared struggles of the performing artists.
Judith, as our heroine, is the symbol of a feminine-powered revolution. She represents the intersection of spirituality, bravery, agency and strength that inspires us as womxn to take action in the resistance to oppression and violence.
As a collective of artists and Jewish feminists, Well of Wills sees it as part of our mission to embolden the voices of womxn as leaders of the movement towards equity for the marginalized. We view activism and creativity as spiritual work. Through the deconstruction and reconstruction of a story of the Jewish people, we will summon the powers of collaboration, creative expression and community to create bold works of art that serve as prayer, ritual and catharsis.
