Kol b'Isha/Voice Within Woman
"Kol bIsha/Voice Within Woman" is a meditation in movement on female voices, visibility, and silences. It is about private and public female spaces and how the sound of our voices establishes our presence.

In Hebrew, kol b'isha erva, (Song Of Songs 2:14) means, a womans voice is sweet/pleasing. With one letter changed, pleasing becomes nakedness, and is the source for the ancient Jewish custom that forbids public singing by women in observant communities.

Like Jewish culture and practice, this performance is a layering of elements, weaving movement, object manipulation, video and song to explore how voice manifests in bodies and in space. What does the embodiment and ownership of womens struggle to speak look like? How do our voices fill and define space and time? How does the body live in sound? How does sound live in the body?

There will be a Shabbat Gathering on 3/16 which is free (donations gratefully accepted). To register: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4547193
