Purimshpil Preview Show

photo by Erik McGregor http://minister-erik.tumblr.com/ Purim is a favorite Jewish holiday for feminists, young people, queer folks, and party animals of all stripes. Purim calls for noisemaking, rule-breaking, binary-blurring and an end to business as usual. All of those elements come together in a traditional folk play called a Purimshpil. Purim harnesses the power of carnival to turn justice into a celebration, heal the community, and propel us with glitter and trumpets towards the world as it should be. This year's preview show of the Purimsphil will be held on Thursday, March 17th at 8pm (doors open at 7pm) at the East Midwood Jewish Center (1625 Ocean Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11230). Join in the fabulousness and the fun! The Purim process is led by The Aftselakhis Spectacle Committee (TASC) in cahoots with Jews For Racial & Economic Justice, the Workmen's Circle and in partnership with Great Small Works.
