I've been working with Yochai Greenfeld in helping him develop a presentation of his new solo-show Abbi Gezunt: It Gets Bitter as part of LABAlive. LABAlive is an evening of art, performance and text inspired by Jewish texts. On Saturday, February 2nd at 7:30pm, LABAlive returns to the Theater at the 14th Street Y. Get ready for three groundbreaking, genre-breaking, and heartbreaking performances and an absorbing exhibition of visual art.
LABA is the premier incubator for Jewish art and culture. Each year our fellows create new works inspired by Jewish texts. This year’s theme: LIFE and DEATH.
