Not Letting It In is an improvised, participatory theatrical event created by Jason Morris Danino Holt that explores the art of confession. Performers from around the world sit around a table and confess, facilitating honest conversations and meaningful catharsis. Audience members serve as witnesses and/or active participants as the process unfolds.

“No family dinner or hang with your closest friends can be compared to the exposure and honesty of [Jason’s] show.”Haaretz Newspaper

Teshuvah—the storied process of repenting, repairing, and returning to our pure form—often feels simple to understand, but difficult to embody. Year in and year out we say the magic words of Yom Kippur and then return to our daily lives as usual. How can the themes of the Days of Awe penetrate into our lives in a meaningful way, so that we truly feel the impact of the High Holy Days? How do we practice teshuvah in a way that influences our actions for the rest of the year?

BAMAH invites you to Join Tel Aviv-based artists Jason Morris Danino Holt, Rabbi Rami Schwartzer, Hana Vazana Grunwald, and Nemuna Ceesay for an interactive, cutting-edge experience that combines performance art, spiritual exercise, and immersive learning to take the concept of teshuvah from abstract idea to intentional practice.

This program is made possible by the Dollye and I. Wolford Berman Educational Initiative Grant.
