The Theatrical Body: A Jewish Drama

By Basmat Hazan-Arnoff

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2009

Arnoff writes about the contradiction between Judaism and theatre and her experience working with single-gender casts. This experience, she says, created an opportunity to examine and challenge the traditional templates in which she saw male and female and to create alternatives that might, through a narrow reality, create a wider view of the Jewish body.
