Salomé: Woman of ValorRefracted in fragments of fact, re-flective factions of fiction in frictionre-taled in the toiling, tilled in the tolling, styled in the telling, Detailing, tallying –through history, mystery, herstory, errstory,a mythistory to be endlessly re-told.Poet/spoken word performer Adeena Karasick and trumpeter/composer Frank London present Salomé: Woman of Valor, their radical re-telling of the story of Salomé. This multi-disciplinary performance re-visions Salomé through a feminist Jewish perspective and translates the story not only as a narrative of violence and desire, but of scapegoating and our contemporary preoccupation with erotic and aesthetic transgression, occupying a space of otherness and desire.The creative team for Salomé: Woman of Valor includes:- visual landscape artist Paul Clay, who is both VJ for Basement Bhangra and the set designer of the Broadway show, RENT.- super virtuosic creative musicians, percussionist Deep Singh and keyboardist Shai Bachar, performing the Jewish/Arabic/Bhangra/Free Jazz/trance score with trumpeter London.- dancer Roni Yaari, creator of Inner Spirit Dance, practitioner of all styles of belly dance from classical, modern, Arabic, Indian and beyond.
