October 26 - October 27, 2013
Ritual, tradition and memory are woven together in choreographer Joanie Block’s newest creation, Streaming Shabbat. Using three stories centered around Shabbat, Block merges an original score by Billy Novick that reinterprets traditional melodies, video art by Lynn Bikofsky that weaves stories and poetry throughout the program, and stunning choreography by Block. A professional dance company of six dancers create a memorable performance that challenges, inspires and ultimately connects us to the rituals and power of the Jewish Sabbath.
