UNC Asheville's Center for Jewish Studies will host "A Jerusalem Between Us," a one-man play written and performed by Aaron Davidman, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 14, at UNC Asheville's Lipinsky Auditorium. The performance is held in conjunction with the Visualizing Human Rights Anti-Conference. The event is free and open to the public.
In "A Jerusalem Between Us," Davidman gives voice to characters from various places – from a socialist summer camp in New York to the Western Wall in Jerusalem. The play addresses recent controversies that are divisive to Americans and American Jews. It was commissioned by Theatre J of Washington, D.C., and developed in part by the Jewish Theatre San Francisco and the Sundance Institute Program.
Davidman is the artistic director of the Jewish Theatre of San Francisco, and co-wrote and directed "Blood Relative," an international collaboration about the Israeli-Palestine story. He also directed "Golda's Balcony" at Theatreworks and "Death of a Salesman" at the Traveling Jewish Theatre.
