Creator, director, performer (2019)
Created, performed, and directed by Dylan Seders Hoffman
In collaboration with Tali Laurence, Genevieve Legowski, and Sonja O’Brien
A Torah School dropout turned Yiddishist, a Conservadox Jew, a cultural Jew, and one Quaker.
What does the next generation of Judaism and Jewishness look like? What possibilities open when we define Jewish continuity for ourselves? And what exists in the space between longing and belonging? In this performance, mixing together dance, Yiddish song, Hebrew prayer, flowing water, and hot oil, Hoffman and her collaborating artists illustrate the ways in which their generation is embracing, rejecting, and reconstructing their Jewishness.
Presented at Bryn Mawr College in February 2019.
