Presented in association with the exhibition Graphic Details: Confessional Comics by Jewish Women
An evening of voice, movement, art, and learning in anticipation of the holiday of Purim. We’ll look at the “masks” we all wear... and enjoy Purim treats. Experience two workshops in one night, choose from:
“Unmasking Vashti and Esther”with Rabbi Elyse Goldstein, looking at the ancient Rabbis take on the characters of Vashti and Esther from the Purim story. Who is the heroine? The anti-heroine? Are they both a little of both? What do they offer women today?
Hands-on comics workshop with Graphic Details artist and filmmaker, Sarah Lazarovic. Your own confessional comics become noise-makers to use on Purim or any time you need to “shake it up.”
Composer, vocalist and dancer Rabbi Miriam Margles will use movement and voice to inspire getting into the Purim theme of being what you are not and revealing what you truly are. Get ready for serious exploration and guided ridiculousness!
A tour and discussion of the exhibition, unmasking the art in Graphic Details.
Presented by the Koffler Centre of the Arts together with Kolel: The Adult Centre for Liberal Jewish Learning. Kolel Programs are sponsored in part by the Kolel Legacy Fund at the Jewish Foundation of Greater Toronto.
