Abstract

Jewish choreographers have consistently created dances that embody the shifting role of Israel in American Jewish life. Countering the Zionism of mid-century dances about Israel, contemporary Jewish American choreographers such as Liz Lerman and Kristen Smiarowski actively question the ideology of unconditional support, deftly grapple with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and situate performance as an opportunity for activism, inquiry, and debate.
