The Hive Presents theatre dybbuk’s “lost tribes”

DESCRIPTION

Inspired by the stories of the lost tribes of Israel, theatre dybbuk presents a full-length theatrical work, rich in movement, original music, and lyrical language that relates ancient mythological and tribal narratives to contemporary questions of integration, appropriation, and belonging.

THE SHOW

In the early eighth century BCE, the Neo-Assyrian Empire conquered the Northern Kingdom of Israel, from whence it has been said that ten of the twelve ancient tribes of Israel were deported and assimilated. These tribes are now lost to history, with a variety of folktales, legends, and theories about their fates having come about since that time. Some are told from the point of view of those who regard themselves as members of a lost tribe, while others are told from an outside perspective in order to make a case for self-serving outcomes.

Framed in the context of a gallery exhibition, “lost tribes” weaves together stories from the Assyrian conquest to the present day, tracing a world history of assimilation and dominance; of cultural conquest, annihilation, and survival. The performance incorporates choreography by Kai Hazelwood, production design by Leslie K. Gray, and a live percussion score composed by Michael Skloff, created in collaboration with Emilia Moscoso Borja and Alex Shaw. The production is written and directed by theatre dybbuk’s artistic director, Aaron Henne, and developed with the ensemble.

Freeing Your Inner Pharaoh: A Jewish Meditation Workshop for Passover

DESCRIPTION

Passover is the perfect time to reflect on what constraints our freedom (the Hebrew word for Egypt, Mitzrayim, literally translates to “narrow space”), what we can learn from the most famous narrative of the Jewish tradition, and how we can apply the story and themes of enslavement and freedom to our own lives and communities. Let’s get deep with these themes through guided meditation, put pen to paper for a writing meditation, and share in some delicious K4P snacks with neighbors, friends, and community.

Who is Presenting

Lighting the Way: A Jewish Meditation Workshop for Hanukah

Hanukah is so much more than spinning a dreidel, opening presents, and eating latkes, but many of us are looking for ways to create a more meaningful experience around the holiday. Gather with us on the third night of the festival of lights and explore the beautiful themes and rituals around light, miracles, and dedication (Hanukah literally translates to “dedication).
