Let's Talk: Staging God, Artistic Expression of the Unknown


Mar 4, 2019
06:00 PM until 08:30 PM


Reception at 6pm; Program at 7pm

Throughout history, various cultures have used songs, stories, poetry, and dance to communicate religious beliefs: Noh drama of Japan; the reverent preparation before Bharatanatyam dance in India; the plays written for holy festivals by the Greeks; the ritual storytelling and sensorial reenactment of the Pesach seder; or Egungun praise dance in Nigeria. Frequently, a storyteller is not only a narrator but also an actor, communicating morals and lessons to the audience by approximating the deities, and the performance itself is a votive offering. Join us as we investigate the intersections between ritual and performance, then and now.
