“Women on Women: Storytelling” Hertzberg / Ipp / Nicholls – storytelling

Three artists—Polish, British, American—offer stories and reflections that consider “a woman’s role” in an intimate night of performance and discussion over a deconstructed 3-course meal.

Zuza Ziółkowska/Hercberg presents a herstorically spoken performance about Jewish freedom fightresses, members of the International Brigades in 1936-39, based on their biographies reconstructed on the basis of archival documents and interviews with families and friends. Jacqueline Nicholls explores the nameless women of the Talmud, and how contemporary women’s identities still threaten to morph, dissolve, and disappear. Maia Ipp draws lines between Holocaust memory, desire, and voice. Join us for food, wine, and discussion between presentations.
Zuza Ziółkowska/Hercberg is a painter, author of installations and performative actions currently working on her Doctor of Arts degree at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts. Jacqueline Nicholls is a London based visual artist whose work has been exhibited in solo shows and significant contemporary Jewish Art group shows in the UK, USA, and Israel. Maia Ipp is a writer, educator, and founder of the After After Collective.
