Blue Like Me: Identity Exploration with Siona Benjamin and Rabbi Sandy Sasso
November 13 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Through performance art, conversation, and Q&A, attendees will explore sacred stories of identity, challenge, and transformation during this creative and thought-provoking event featuring Indian Jewish artist Siona Benjamin and Rabbi Sandy Sasso.
Centering the sacred storytelling of the midrash, Siona Benjamin – a trans-cultural Jewish artist who grew up in Hindu and Muslim societies while educated in Catholic and Zoroastrian schools – will, along with Rabbi Sasso and dancers from Phoenix rising, explore how sacred narratives link one’s identity to larger communal traditions and understanding.
The speakers and performers at this event have each had to create their own narratives to break down barriers in order to reach their high levels of achievement. Together, they will examine the sacred responsibility of holy storytelling and will teach the audience how they can create sacred stories for themselves.
A partnership between JCC Indianapolis, Congregation Beth-El Zedeck, and Center for Interfaith Cooperation. This event is also part of the JCC’s 24th Ann Katz Festival of Books.
