There were moments that were funny, and moments that were pleasing, but all in all it didn't do it for me. It didn't seem to have a cohesive whole; or a meaningful theme.

Quotes & Highlights

_Out of Sight _comes to Berkeley from The Marsh in San Francisco, where it got great Goldstar reviews, winning the Roar of the Crowd award.
“Felder’s comic and emotional timing is as sharply honed as her manual dexterity… _Sight _is slyly full of small delights that add up to both a timely political argument and a tale of love that reaches beyond such divisions.” -San Francisco Chronicle
“An equally gifted solo performer, circus artist and writer, she has - as always — a funny and poignant autobiographical tale to tell. And under David O’Connor’s fluid, perfectly paced direction, she tells it beautifully.” —_San Francisco Examiner _
“Her humanistic message is again in a mutual embrace with local audiences.” —_Bay Area Reporter _
“You don’t have to be Jewish or gay or a juggler to love this performer. We could not recommend her more highly.” —San Francisco Theater Blog (4 Stars)

Description

Solo theater artist and trickster Sara Felder invites you into the story of a nearly-blind mother and her lesbian daughter who try to “see” each other as they navigate their different perspectives on Israel. With her mix of circus tricks, shadow puppets and a Jewish queer sensibility, Felder sets out to balance family loyalty, social justice and juicy lemons.

Sara Felder’s body of work, including radical solo circus theater and witty multi-actor plays, explores serious themes using forms that are comic, engaging and vaudevillian. As a professional juggler, Felder ran away with San Francisco’s Pickle Family Circus, was a featured act in Joel Grey’s Borscht Capades, toured Nicaragua and Cuba with the Women’s Circus and Jugglers for Peace, performed at Jewish/Yiddish festivals all over the world, taught juggling at San Quentin and other prisons and was the opening act for Joan Rivers.
