"A Kadish for Bernie Madoff," NYC, 8 Nov, 2012

Madoff posterAlicia Jo Rabins' new song cycle, A Kaddish for Bernie Madoff, will premier November 8th and 15th at Joe's Pub!

Thursdays, Nov 8, 15th, 2012, 7pm
Joe's Pub
425 Lafayette St
New York, NY 10003

Interweaving religious texts about money with interviews Rabins conducted over the course of two years (including with an FBI agent on the case, Madoff victims, and a Buddhist monk), A Kaddish for Bernie Madoff will investigate the intersection of mysticism and finance, the inevitability of cycles, and the true meaning of wealth.

Inspired by personal finance blogs, kabbalistic numerology, and the Kaddish, Rabins explores connections between Madoff's individual crimes and their larger communal and cultural impacts. Ordinary-seeming actions come to reveal truths about the deeper significance of Madoff's deception and the surprising interconnectedness of humans to one another.
