'Streaming Shabbat': Dancing in the Light

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Ritual, tradition, and memory weave together in Joanie Block's newest creation. This multi-media dance performance about women's experiences of Shabbat, including Talmudic and modern stories, was inspired by Joanie's own story of a Shabbat image sustaining her through a brush with cancer. Original score by Billy Novick and Willie Sordillo; video art by Lynn Bikofsky.
