Theatrical Performance: theatre dybbuk Presents "exagoge"

Fowler Museum at UCLA

UCLA North Campus, Los Angeles, CA 90095

8:00pm

Join us in the Amphitheater for "exagoge," the first extant Jewish play, written in the style of a Greek tragedy by Ezekiel the Poet in the second century BCE. Theatre dybbuk has used the existing 269 lines of the original play and added to it, building a work rich in movement, music, and poetry. Infused with the experiences of later refugees and the disenfranchised, dating from the 17th century to the present, the play highlights the shared struggles of ancient and modern peoples. Note: This is an outdoor performance, so please dress accordingly and bring a blanket for lawn seating. Co-sponsored by theatre dybbuk and the Dortort Center for Creativity in the Arts at UCLA Hillel.
