The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center in New York City presented the Judaica project with Nazlıhan Eda Erçin (Turkey), Agnieszka Mendel (Poland), & Ben Spatz (US) livestreaming on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Monday 16 October at 6:30 p.m. EDT (New York) / 5:30 p.m. CDT (Chicago) / 3:30 p.m. PDT (Los Angeles).
The Judaica project is a laboratory for new embodied technique at the crossroads of experimental performance, critical identity politics, and ethnomusicological archives. Funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council to conduct six months of full-time embodied research, the Judaica project has been working with Jewish songs in Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, Turkish, Luganda, English, and other languages. The laboratory work draws on performance studies, social epistemology, visual anthropology, de-colonial Jewish studies, and contemporary philosophy to offer new ways of thinking and working with vocality, embodiment, identity, culture, and multimedia. www.urbanresearchtheater.com
