Amidst volunteering, community support, personal practices, it's hard to know what you can do to feel whole or see the light. 🕯️ Nessa Norich and her crew of performance beings are putting this evening together, and I am not only THERE for it, I'm also a supporting producer. 🎂 Did I mention it's ON MY BIRTHDAY?!
So come learn about the rebellious Judith who cut off her oppressors head with a FUCKING KNIFE (#goals) or join us for rituals of light and joy, and for the freakin' dancing, because we can need/do that TOO! 🕯️Tickets in the comments! 🕯️ Snag one HERE and see you THERE!
A Community Celebration at the Intersection of Art, Activism and Spirituality
On December 4th, we find one another in the darkness, sharing the weight of our struggle and illuminating the light of our joy. Join community, artists and activists for More Light! A night of Community Celebration and Live Art.
The evening will be electric with live music, ritual, short film premiere, and the premiere work-in-progress of The Judiths of Virtuous Dissent*.
About The Judiths of Virtuous Dissent:
Theater director, Nessa Norich and her ensemble of interdisciplinary artists channel the fullness of our grief, anger and love into a prismatic vision of a heroine who vanquishes the force of violence with the force of feeling. Judith is a mythological rebel who uses the oppressor’s knife to cut off his head. We parse through the realities of resistance through her story.
About the night:
This event occurs during the festival of Hanukkah, a celebration of the miraculous continuity of light in times of darkness. In this spirit, we gather community to share an evening of music, art and meaningful connection. We invite you to release fear, and join us to gather energy for the fight for brighter futures.
Information for how to connect with local activist communities will be available as well. More Artist Contributors to be announced soon!
