Sunday at Mill House presents: New Year, New World
In celebration of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, this afternoon of music and movement will bring traditional Sephardic Jewish melodies and New Year's customs to the historic Gomez Mill House, where they will meet with contemporary dance, music and performance practices to create moments of magic and inspire visions of the new world we are co-creating in the year to come.
What happens to tradition when it discovers a new world? How do customs, stories, and even flavors translate and transform when they encounter the other? And how can diversity and innovation be vehicles for honoring tradition while bringing it into the present and making it relevant to our collective future?
Audience will be invited to participate in various actions and will be treated to a true feast for the senses - a tasty and colorful celebration of life at this moment.
Ophra Wolf, dance; Katie Down, music; Craig Chin, music.
Ophra Wolf and Katie Down are both contemporary artists and healers of Sephardic heritage. They are joined by musician Craig Chin, a regular collaborator of Ophra's under the moniker The River Flows Two Ways. Together their work explores essential questions around our relationship to time and tradition - past, present and future.
