The Jerusalem Theater Group presents the second annual "Midrash Bama" theatre festival, which will take place at the Jerusalem Theatre from December 9-11, 2010.
This year's festival features Jerusalem's most innovative theatrical dialogue - the audience meets theatre-in-the-round to challenge the borders of the familiar, creating an expressive, original and relevant theatrical language.
The festival features a selection of vibrant and exciting plays based on Jewish sources with an innovative concept - actors interacting with the audience - meetings with artists - a public Beit Midrash - and a Kabbalat Shabbat for families - young and old.
Festival events include performances, off-stage "happenings" with actors, musicians, jugglers, and more. All events and performances will take place in Hebrew unless otherwise noted.
