A Pigeon & A Boy: Act 2 - Footnotes
Monday, January 27, 2014 - 7:00pm

Just as footnotes elaborate on a topic, these staged reading performances and discussions are designed to take you deeper into the subject matter of the novel through the magical medium of theatre. The Jewish Theatre Collaborative's process begins with a question that the novel raises. We dig into that question and transform what we discover into a piece of theatre exploring that question. The performances will enrich your experience of the novel and forthcoming mainstage production!

Founded by Sacha Reich in 2008, Jewish Theatre Collaborative's unique strengths as an arts organization are in creating adaptations, collaborating with community partners, gathering community and catalyzing conversations. At the same time, and as a result of all these strengths, JTC also creates high-quality, memorable theatre, produced with and performed by professional Portland theatre artists. In three years, JTC has created and presented 30 distinct programs, including touring productions that have reached just over 10,000 audience members age 3-100 across Portland and around the state. These programs have been used to catalyze conversations about complex issues such as cultural dislocation, humor as a survival tool, Arab-Jewish relations and public health. The recipient of 3 Drammy awards, JTC has received critical acclaim and distinguished itself among its professional peers.
