Judaica Project

The Judaica project is a laboratory for new intersections of songwork and scholarship. The core of the project is six months of full-time embodied research involving three skilled practitioners in a studio laboratory. From 2016-2018 the project is funded by a Leadership Fellowship from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
