“The Book of Esther” and Other Works

February 12, 2017 at 4:00 pm

Presented in partnership with The Associated Pomegranate Society

With elegant energy and fluid choreography by Ariel Grossman, Ariel Rivka Dance’s The Book of Esther investigates, through emotionally driven movement, the biblical stories of Queen Vashti and Queen Esther, epitomizing the Jewish traditions of community, collaboration, and support. Featuring a strong and vibrant all-female cast and a distinctive melodic musical score by Grossman’s husband, David Homan, this beautiful dance adaptation of the well-known Purim story wrestles with issues women have faced in both historical and modern times.
