Queer, Jewish trailer
Queer, Jewish is a collection of dances and stories on the intersection of Queer and Jewish identity in diaspora. Moriah Ella Mason and collaborators explore queer and feminist themes in Jewish sacred texts, use folklore to embrace real and ideal queer bodies, and re-formulate ritual to birth a new futurist aesthetic.
