The Purim Ball I SEE WHAT YOU’RE DOING: PURIM, PUPPETS, POLITSEY! is an original work of art grounded in the traditional pan-Jewish practice of  dressing up and staging transgressive folk plays in the coldest days of winter.   The plays or “shpiln,” often re-enact the scroll of Esther but remix the ancient plot and characters to deliver a slightly drunken but profound  contemporary critique of  power.  At the heart of the The Aftselokhes Spectacle Committee event is an original handmade Purim Shpil created by a community of 100 participants.
See you on the dance floor!
