BEHIND, BENEATH, & BEYOND SURVIVAL
MEMORY AND MIRRORS: IMPROVISATIONAL THEATER BASED ON TRUE STORIES


MARCH 3, 2010 AT 7:30 PM
CONGREGATION NETIVOT SHALOM
1316 UNIVERSITY AVE, BERKELEY

The Playback Theater is a modern ritual with powerful ability to help build, strengthen and connect between community members. The show brings together compassion, intimacy and fun at the same time. Jewish Circle Productions is an educational Drama production company dedicated to spreading Jewish and Israeli awareness through the use of drama. A team composed of Israeli actors, writers, and musicians; we believe that the best way to connect to our audience is through real people and compelling stories.  The actors improvise on the spot a scene or an image based on a story. The playback technique treats the story and the storyteller with respect and the actors are highly trained to listen, reflect and play the story back in a creative meaningful way. A story can be anything; nostalgic, sad or funny.

Tickets:
  • Reservations: $15, $10/seniors & students - RSVP to Rachel at 510.549.9447 x101 or office@netivotshalom.org.
  • At the door: $18, $12/seniors & college students

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
