Here's a little bit about the show:
Onion Dances is an evening-length autobiographical solo. In the solo, I explore my Jewish American roots, as a descendent of Jews that came to the United States at the time of the Civil War. The Rees family helped to found the largest Reform synagogue in Minneapolis in 1878. I am conducting an oral history project as an ongoing component of Onion Dances because our family has few written records about our ancestors. They were interesting humanitarians, artists, peace activists, social workers, postal workers, and more. This piece is political and deeply personal and anchored in my family’s past, as well as my present as a millennial.
