cave... a dance for lilith
"Cave…" is an exciting collision of theatre, dance and music that explores the humanity behind the myth of one of the most infamous demon goddesses of Jewish folklore. Lilith's violent reputation has been feared throughout the centuries and sensationalized everywhere from classical art to "True Blood." According to some interpretations of Genesis, she is also the first woman--created even before Eve. A Co-Production between theatre dybbuk and L.A. Contemporary Dance Company.
