Two Jews, Three Rings: Circus Arts and Biblical Studies, Part 2

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this workshop we will become sacred artists, modeling active, artistic, and just plain fun methods of studying Bible through circus arts. We will study a biblical text from Genesis and will 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 from the text. This workshop is accessible to all skill and ability levels (we promise!).

Note: This session is scheduled for 2 hours. You are welcome to stay for both blocks, or to choose one.
