Come join visionary performance artist Melusina Gomez and experimental Klezmer musician David Rosenfeld for an evening of danced thoughts, quiet reflections and wild wishes, inspired by the letters, poetry and stories of women through six centuries, including , 'Ariake-Poems of Love and Longing' ,'The Girl Who Loved the Wind'.and 'The Finger' penned by the legendary Kabbalist Rabbi, Issac Luria. Paper Promises glides through a landscape of visual art, soundscape, resigned absurdity, and butoh inspired imagery and dance, ultimately asking the question: What does life promise us?

Presented by the Jewish Dance Theatre and co-presented by the JCC of the East Bay
Tickets available at the door.
