Go to the 5 pm show and eat out afterwards. We had cocktails afterward at Piattini on Mission. The incredible bartender continued our education in bar culture and mixed some wonderful drinks.

I'd definitely recommend that you see Sara's "Out of Sight". It's very inventive, thoughtful, funny, and engaging.

Funny, affectionately sharp and thoughtful storytelling. The juggling and puppetry were magical and worked well with the words. Sara took some wonderful risks (of balance, of memory, of characterization) in an intimate theater space. Glad I saw it!

“Felder is a master storyteller and social satirist whoses gentle but incisive humor recalls Lily Tomlin or Jerry Seinfeld — if they could juggle.” —Santa Cruz Sentinel

Description

Sara Felder’s Out of Sight

Written & Performed by Sara Felder

Directed by David O’Connor

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.

About Sara Felder:

A solo theater artist, playwright, juggling diva, trickster and teacher, Felder has toured with the Pickle Family Circus, and Joel Grey’s Borscht Capades. She has performed in Cuba with Jugglers for Peace, in Nicaragua with the Women’s Circus, in Germany with the Klezmatics and all over the world at Festivals of Jewish/Yiddish Culture. She recently opened for Joan Rivers in Philadelphia. Her highly-acclaimed _June Bride _has toured to over 35 venues. Felder is currently developing Melancholy, A Comedy, about Abraham Lincoln and mental illness and, her newest endeavor, A Queer Divine, about grief. She is a recipient of Leeway Foundation’s Transformation Award which honors artists committed to art and social change and has been awarded artistic fellowships by the Philadelphia Theatre Initiative, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Independence Foundation, the National Performance Network, the California Arts Council and the San Francisco Arts Commission. She has been an artist-in-residence at 1812 Productions, the Headlands Center for the Arts, Intersection for the Arts and the California Arts Council, the latter for her work teaching juggling and performance in California prisons.
