A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
A multimedia dance performance that traces the intersections of dancer Adam McKinney’s multiple heritages will take place at the Wellesley College Jewett Arts Center on Saturday, February 12 at 8pm.
HaMapah, Hebrew for The Map, weaves contemporary dance with archival material, personal interviews, Yiddish and American songs and video set to traditional, contemporary and classical music. McKinney danced with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, Bejart Ballet Lausanne and Alonzo King’s LINES Ballet. The performance is directed by Daniel Banks, PhD, a Boston native and international theatre director. There will be a post-performance discussion with McKinney and Banks.
The event is presented by the Jewish Community Centers of Greater Boston and Wellesley College Hillel and is part of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Performing Arts Series.
