Take Root with ANIKAI Dance Theater
Lilith, a solo performance, will be an envisioning of the character of Lilith from the Jewish tradition – the first woman, created as Adam’s equal, who rebelled against Adam and ran away from the Garden of Eden. This character will be explored as a figure from ancient texts who has been re-envisioned and reclaimed in modern feminist Jewish thought.

The performance will view Lilith as an observer of history, dwelling outside of linear time, who relives her own creation, her fall/escape from Adam and Eden, her punishment (to have one hundred of her children die every day) and the injustice that led to it. At times, however, she will appear as a creatrix, a serpent, a winged creature, embodying the many ways that literature and art has viewed her through the ages, but reinterpreting these disparate images into one whole, complex being.

“Wendy Jehlen is a captivating choreographer, with sharp musical sensibilities, an affinity for the natural integration of modern and world dance styles, and a deep sensitivity to the connections between human body movements and moods.”
