Join for conversation, culture, and ritual.
3:00 PM – 5:00 PM – The Night World (Family Programming)
Join us for an interactive performance as your children travel together with Fantastical Puppeteer of MAPS, Rachel, as she ushers them from Mordicai Gerstein’s children’s book, The Night World, into their own magical dreamscape.
They will be helped along the way by celebrated animals including Sylvie the cat, from The Night World, as their imaginations run wild. Each performance is highly personal and roughly 15 minutes long. It will help each child explore the sublime and the nocturnal in an intimate setting of 10 kids at a time.
RSVP Times: 3:00pm, 3:45pm, and 4:25pm. Each performance is roughly 15 minutes long and will accommodate 10 kids. Parents can sit in theater if they’d like. While waiting, parents and children will be ushered into an adjacent room to be immersed in artwork from students at the 14th Street Y Preschools as they read The Night World and other wonderful PJ Library books.
Thank you to the Grinspoon Foundation and PJ Library for providing this exciting adventure.RSVP
6:00 PM – 10:00 PM – Celebration from Dusk Into the Night
Join a flow of inspirational encounters filled with intrigue, magic, angels, music, ghost images, ancient and contemporary text, Hebrew, English, Aramaic surrounded by the aromas of Ethiopian coffee on our downtown Tikkun. Create your own narrative, your own journey, learn and question and then dance it off on the roof.
Led by LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture artists and teachers, with Bina, The Israeli Artists Project, Dirty Laundry Theater Company and so much more. The evening will include art installations, performances on land and water, text study in Hebrew and English and music. The evening will end with a Rooftop Party brimming with cheesecake… and a little celebration of the last 10 years of LABA and the upcoming sabbatical of its artistic director Ronit Muszkatblit.
