Jazz Talmud: Discussion and Performance
Jake Marmer, Greg Wall, Frank London, Uri Sharlin, Eyal Maoz The Talmud is often thought of as an arcane, overly legalistic, outmoded Jewish text. Enter "Jazz Talmud," a poetry-and-music project, inspired by Talmudic modes of dialog, spontaneous interpretations, interruptions, arguing, and the ecstatic attempts at wisdom. The poems mimic Talmudic rhetoric, style, and turns of phrase, as they reflect on the contemporary Jewish experience, jazz, dreams, loneliness and more. Performance will be preceded by a discussion/conversation on the nature of Talmud. (more)REGISTER
