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.

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.
