Exile: Kisses on both Cheeks

Sun, April 2, 2017 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm



 

A “Salon Theater” performance by
Jewish Women’s Theater

Sun April 2 @ 5pm 

Exile: Kisses on Both Cheeks explores the Sephardic legacy of family, community, and country, looking for home more than 500 years after the expulsion from Spain. It is a Jewish immigrant story that is rarely told on stage. Until now.

Jewish Women’s Theater (JWT) is a non-profit arts group that reinvents Jewish theater by putting a contemporary spin on the centuries-old tradition of salons. Salons originated as a way to explore counterculture unacceptable to those in power. Today, JWT reinvents the Salon model to provide an outlet to debunk harmful and dangerous stereotypes of the Jewish people and to offer up a platform for Jews to see that which unifies rather than divides.

Not just for women, JWT aims to leave no Jewish story untold, while celebrating the truths that connect us all. Encouraging and supporting both lay and professional writers and artists, the organization performs original works that empower and educate, create community and build cultural legacy. JWT seeks, develops and adapts stories celebrating a diverse Jewish population that can share the stage, regardless of gender, generation, degree of Jewish observance, ethnicity, cultural background, or sexual orientation. And so we draw audiences of all ages, both women and men, mostly Jewish, but not all.

Now looking ahead to their 10th season, JWT has created 25 original shows...and has performed to sell-out audiences in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and the Bay Area.
