Dancing in an Upside Down World! An IJV Purim Party

Join IJV on Saturday, February 27th for an evening of radical intrigue, mystery, uproars and dancing to celebrate Purim 5781! We’ll turn your living room into the scene of history’s most dastardly plots & most courageous queer anti-fascist heroes, as well as a topsy-turvy dance floor! Everyone is welcome to this online party. Coming in costume is STRONGLY recommended!

Featuring the world premiere of the Pandemic Puppets Purim Shpil!

“In the apocalyptic grand metropolis of Torontr√©al, in the year 5781, Ester and her uncle Mordekhai, along with Vashti, Ahashverosh, and Haman, are all living through starkly different pandemic realities. What do Black Lives Matter protests have to do with COVID? What do Indigenous liberation struggles have to do with the housing crisis? Are white middle class Jews ready to give up their relative comfort and show up for class and anti-racist struggles? Come to this special screening of the Pandemic Puppets Purim Shpil to find out! “

Door prizes for best costume!
