Mabou Mines / Suite Festival
New York, NY, 2013
A process-driven exploration of themes and icons in Judaic mythology, as well as Lurianic Kabbalah.
Part I, “The Vessels,” drew upon Bereshit
(the Book of Genesis
), including creation, Eve, and Cain and Abel. Part II, “The Time of the Prophets,” was inspired by the construction of the Temple, its fall, and the Ark of the Covenant. Part III, “Kenosis,” explored the Incarnation of a messiah-like figure.
In this particular work, the process was the project.
