News & Events

Conney Jewish Arts Conference Keynote

Judith will present a keynote address at the upcoming Conney Jewish Arts Conference, Ap. 19-21, 2017 at the University of Wisc, at Madison. 50 Years After Harold Rosenberg: Is there a Jewish Art (Yet?).

Orly Portal's "Swiria," created in Israel last winter would have been considered too folkloristic, along with Sara Levi-Tanai's work of old. Judith reconsiders them in her Conney Conference keynote.

Yiddish Summer Weimar

Judith will teach at the international festival: YIDDISH SUMMER WEIMAR 2017 in Weimar, Germany, Aug. 8-12. Our special topic is "The Other Israel: Seeing Unseen Diasporas." Israel is a kaleidoscope of cultures from around the world. Yiddish culture is only one of these, alongside Iraqi, Moroccan, Ethiopian, Russian, and many others. This summer some renowned artists and teachers introduce this amazing and complex intercultural matrix in the YSW dance workshop showing connections between Hasidic, Arabic, Yiddish and European Expressionist dance influencing early Israeli folk dances of the 1930s and 1940s.

Teachers will include Judith Brin Ingber, Medhat Aldabaai, Jill Gellerman and Andreas Schmitges.
