WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This adaptation of Howard Zinn's Emma uses wit and humor to illuminate history from below, as it celebrates the life of Emma Goldman, the anarchist, feminist, and free-spirited thinker who was exiled from the United States because of her outspoken views. Studium-praxis(Martina Plag and Leah Walton) reveals the life of the remarkable Emma Goldman through innovative storytelling and theatrical devises that transform a birdcage into a prison, a working gramophone into a wedding hall and cafe, capture turn-of-the-last century New York City and two transAtlantic voyages all in the space of a brown-stone parlor. ... of immense interest to feminists, American historians, and people interested in the long history of resistance and protest in the United States ... to show at the Festival of Jewish Theater and Ideas.
