Faygele Romp in a Field of Wheat (2023)

Collaboration with Brooch Solomon

Fantastical queer Jewish romp through a biblical landscape of gay intimacy. Join us as we use dance to travel through space and time to visit with Judaism’s lesbian icons, Ruth and Naomi. They’ve got wisdom to share about Jewish, queer, feminine intimacy. Set during the springtime Hebrew month of Sivan, during the ancient grain harvest festival of Shavuot, the show reflects on queer Jewish pleasure as spiritual practice and connection to ancestors.

Faygele Romp in a Field of Wheat premiered at Soundspace Performing Arts as part of the 2023 Philadelphia Fringe Festival.

When Our Time Comes (2021)

“But what is the past? Could it be, the firmness of the past is just illusion? Could the past be a kaleidoscope, a pattern or images that shift with each disturbance of a sudden breeze, a laugh, a thought? And if the shift is everywhere, how would we know?…In time, there are an infinity of worlds.”-Alan Lightman, Einstein’s Dreams.
