the Theatre Dybbuk Company, Dortort Center, and the Fowler Museum Presents
Join us in the Amphitheater at the Fowler Museum for Exagoge, the first extant Jewish play, written in the style of a Greek tragedy by Ezekiel the Poet in the second century BCE. Theatre Dybbuk has used the existing 269 lines of the original play and added to it, building a work rich in movement, music, and poetry. Infused with the experiences of later refugees and the disenfranchised, dating from the 17th century to the present, the play highlights the shared struggles of ancient and modern peoples. Featuring the Harmony Project Leimert Park Choir.
Note: Bring a blanket to sit on for lawn seating in the intimate Amphitheater. If you would like to picnic, please be advised to bring your own basket: all campus restaurants will be closed. There is limited seating stage level for those who prefer a chair. The Amphitheater is, by its nature, an open-air venue and evenings at UCLA tend to be cool: please dress warmly.
Presented by the Theatre Dybbuk Company (founder Aaron Henne) in collaboration with the Dortort Center for Creativity in the Arts and the Fowler Museum at UCLA. The mission of the Dybbuk Theatre Company is to illuminate the universal human experience by creating provocative theatrical presentations and innovative educational opportunities based on Jewish folklore, rituals, and history.
