Coming Together is a virtual, community-engaged storytelling project that explores the meaning of Jewish community, how we build it and how it has transformed during COVID-19. Join us for a virtual performance of these original stories.
Over several months, an ensemble of artists has shared stories, conducted interviews and used devising techniques to transform these stories into a performance that we are excited to share with the community. These stories reflect real experiences of the pandemic and imagine the beginning of life as we emerge from it. Filled with moments of joy and struggle, laughter and tears, you will have the chance to reflect on your own pandemic experience through the stories shared on our virtual stage.
This production will be closed captioned. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have other accessibility needs or questions about the show.
