Full course description

Description: In this workshop we will become sacred artists, modeling active, artistic, and just plain fun methods of studying Bible through circus arts. We will begin by studying a biblical text from Genesis. We will then use the circus arts to process that text. We will engage in building human pyramids and in partner acrobatics to embody the relationships between characters in that text.  This workshop is accessible to all skill and ability levels (we promise!).

Instructors: Ora Horn Prouser is the Executive Vice President and Academic Dean at the Academy for Jewish Religion. Ayal Prouser is a Circus Coach and graduate student at he Academy for Jewish Religion. 

Intended Audience: Anyone interested in bringing together the arts and Jewish study.
