About this event

Old City Jewish Arts Center presents: TIME, COLLAPSED a live ritual performance with activist and artist talkback. Directed by Schulman and Behrend.

Friday June 25th and Friday July 2nd.

TIME, COLLAPSED is a new work of devised performance art honoring the contraction of time and space in the wake of catastrophic loss. Two performances per night: One at 5:30pm and one at 7pm. Artist and activist talkback follows first performance and precedes the second, occurring at 6pm.

TIME, COLLAPSED features movement and performance by Benjamin Bass and original music scored and performed live by Griffin Rowe. Using the traditional Jewish timeline of grieving as a framework, TIME, COLLAPSED interprets the time-based periods of Shiva - the first week, Sheloshim - the first 30 days, and Yahrtzeit - the first year, after a loved one's death at the hands of violence.

Artist and activist talkback features Aleida Garcia, founder and former president of the National Homicide Justice Alliance, Roz Pichardo, a community leader and founder of Save our City Philly, along with artists Benjamin Behrend, Logan Gabrielle Schulman, and Benjamin Bass at 6pm in between performances.

TIME, COLLAPSED is a part of the exhibition A GOLEM SLEEPS AND WAKES IN THE MOURNING: objects, images, and video from the theatre of grief. The exhibition features works created by Logan Gabrielle Schulman and Benjamin Behrend. Old City Jewish Arts Center gallery open Thursday-Sunday 11am-4pm.
