The Jew in the Ashram - FREE FRINGE

Saturday October 26th, 2019 - 8:00PM

Location : The Kraine Theater, New York, NY

The Jew in the Ashram is a poignant, funny, and lightly interactive solo show about cultural exchange, spiritual healing and identity. As a young woman, Amanda Miller travels from New York City to an ashram in India to overcome her struggles with mental health. Under the guidance of Purnima, an exuberant Indian guru, Amanda is immersed in traditional yoga practices that provoke reflections on prayer, Jewish summer camp, and the role of Judaism in the lives of her late father, David, and his biological mother, Esther, a Holocaust survivor he never met. At select moments, the audience is invited to move, chant, and reflect on their own spiritual journeys and identities—the ones we inherit and the ones we make for ourselves.
