Directed by Jesse Freedman

September 12 – 28 @ THE DOXSEE (232 52nd Street, Sunset Park, Brooklyn)

Meta-Phys Ed.’s THE TALMUD is a genre-bending performance that draws from a century of Chinese martial arts and a single chapter of The Talmud–a 5th century text of Rabbinic Judaism. Featuring innovative production design, live Kung-Fu movie cinematography and choreographed Talmudic debate, THE TALMUD is a confounding exploration of sacred wisdom and how ancient traditions survive the dangerous journey across generations.
