Fall Season Begins September 14

September marks the beginning of a new Jewish Year – 5874 – a number that presents an enigma and raises curiosity.

It also marks the last half of our current fellowship year of TABOO, and with it, three exciting opportunities to see our fellows’ work at LABAlive events this fall.

5874 ushers in the beginning of our search for a new cohort of LABA fellows to join us in January 2024 focused on our next theme—NIGHT. Applications are now open, learn more here.

We’re also seeking a variety of programs, performances, productions, and artists to be a part of our 14Y Theater seasons spanning January 2024 through June 2025. The 14Y will also be selecting two choreographers/dance collectives to be Artists in Residence for January–February 2024. Learn more about that exciting opportunity here.

Beginning September 28, Israeli Artists Project will kick off the STAV Festival, a monthlong cultural experience at the 14Y featuring plays, music, art exhibits, creative events for kids, and more!

We can’t wait to see what forbidden fruit is revealed in the year ahead.

In this comedic quintet, five couples explore the delights and disappointments of their sex lives. Whether they are the first two people on Earth or the last two, modern partners with shifting needs, exes on the eve of a life-altering event, or twelfth-century pen pals, following those most natural desires uncovers truths about their humanity. Altogether, FIVE TIMES IN ONE NIGHT is a hilarious examination of intimacy through the ages.
