Old City Jewish Arts Center presents: WELCOME TO THE SHIVA HOUSE
Welcome to the Shiva House is an interactive virtual performance. Join together as a community through tears, laughter, and good memories, as we explore what it means to grieve collectively.

Shiva (/shiv-UH/) is the seven-day Jewish mourning period following the burial of a loved one; this traditionally involves joining the bereaved in their home for recollection and comfort. This hybrid experience utilizes digital performance, a guided walking meditation, and a companion booklet to help you follow along. Welcome, as we memorialize and celebrate the larger-than-life Sam Bloom, on this, the seventh and final day of Shiva.

INSTRUCTIONS
Audiences will receive an email with more detailed instructions prior to their show date. Audiences will need an internet-enabled device (smartphone, tablet, or computer) with a webcam that supports Zoom. The artists strongly suggest audiences also have a candle, along with matches or a lighter on hand.

Please have a web-enabled smartphone available, along with a pair of headphones, for the brief walking portion at the close of the performance. If audiences are unable to take part in the walking portion of the performance, the artists recommend a good seat next to an outward-facing window.

Note: this show contains audience participation. The show also contains brief graphic language and talk of illness and death.

Recommended for ages 13+.

Benjamin is a company member of ComedySportz where he regularly performs improv.

Logan Gabrielle Schulman (they/them) is a proud queer Jewish (visual + performance) artist, director, cultural educator, and activist. Their work unfolds as ritual collage, complicating commonplace configurations and liturgies of faith in America. Through performance, installation, and video, their practice weaves empathy, criticality, and rupturous deep time into reflexive multimedia narratives. Logan is presently involved in directing new projects with the Sarasota Architectural Foundation (FL), the Marie Selby Botanical Garden (FL), Sarasota Contemporary Dance (FL), Urbanite Theatre (FL), and Maelstrom Collaborative Arts in Cleveland, OH. They have created work for DopoLavoro Teatrale (Toronto), the University of Pennsylvania (Phila), Enya Kalia Creations (NYC), The Renegade Company (NYC & Phila), the Chautauqua Institution (NY), and Vox Populi Gallery (Phila), among others. They earned their Bachelors with Honors in Theater and Religion from New College of Florida. Their work has been supported in residencies and grants from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Florida Humanities Council, InterAct Theatre, Bread & Puppet Theater, the Chautauqua School of Art, the Stella Adler Studio, Headlong Dance Theater, Philadelphia Directors Gathering, and the Directors Lab North (Toronto) and the Directors Lab West (LA). Most recently, their play Make Thee an Ark, co-written with Raychel Ceciro, is featured on the 2020 Kilroys List.
