An inspiring series creating art of resistance at the intersection of sisterhood, activism and spirituality.
This summer, I will be co-facilitating a series of feminist theatre workshops that reconstruct the Biblical story of Judith. Judith is a heroine of the Jewish canon, who liberates her people from the oppression and violence of a colonizing ruler. This project seeks to activate the Judith’s in us all with a close study of the narrative through the lens of feminist theory. Through theatrical interpretation, we will collectively author a new story that responds to the shocking political reality of 2018 to develop pathways of resistance to ongoing forces of oppression.

There will be 5 main topics explored in this series. Each topic will be introduced and discussed by the group at a Thursday Evening Salon. The texts and discussions from this salon will be used as source material for the subsequent Sunday Afternoon Theater Lab. Each Sunday will end with a sharing of work created amongst the ensemble/group.
