An old proverb says, "An enemy is someone whose story you do not know." Wrestling Jerusalem is a solo performance piece about Israel and Palestine. It's a personal story of wrestling. Of grappling. With identity. With social justice. With ethnic allegiance. With history. With spirituality. Drawn from a 30 year journey, the 90 minute play weaves a tapestry of narratives and gives voice and humanity to a dozen different characters. Set in America, Israel and the Palestine, Wrestling Jerusalem reflects on the multi-layered issues that live at the center of a conflict that has lasted generations. Because the topic has a history of challenging community conversation, New Israel Fund will be hosting and moderating the post-matinee discussions on Sundays under the banner of "The Peace Cafe." These Peace Cafes will give chance to break bread, respond to the play and discuss your experience.

Part of Intersection's SYSTEMS, Spring 2014
Both omnipresent and hidden, systems give structure to our everyday lives. Intersection's multi-disciplinary program explores various mechanisms of social order at work. Intersection hopes to engage communities from the Bay Area to expand our understanding of systems -- systems of economy, systems of tradition, and systems of oppression, among others -- and our voice to effect change within them.

The artists-in-residence in Systems offer economic, historical, political and aesthetic regimes as subjects for discussion. The series boasts a wide array of new work by artists reflecting on how we negotiate existence within systems that structure the world around us. They draw our attention to codes that in many cases are so self-evident that we are no longer aware of them. Is it possible to uncover these systems? Is it possible to open them up to fertile explorations, critical reflections, and hopefully, to creative alternatives?
