Bored? Broke? A little bereft? Ready to spend some time with demons? Dybbuks? Yiddish? Intrigue? Check out Teibele and Hurmizah, an erotic fable in English and Yiddish. It will begin its two-week Baltimore tour at Arellano Theater at Hopkins on Friday, April 13, and will end next Saturday, April 21, at the Bell Foundry with a stop of the Jewish Museum of Maryland on Thursday, April 19. Admission: Free!

Opening with Talmudic standup by local poet Alexander Nemser, and a short screening of the stop-motion animations of Mugi Takei. Featuring the musical talent of Charm City Klezmer and the creative costumes by recent MICA graduate (MICA ’12), Amelia Beiderwell. “Teibele and Hurmizah” explores superstition, fantasy, and sex in a conservative Jewish community in Poland at the turn of the century with a dark and sexy sense of humor.

Admission is at no cost thanks to funding from the Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Fellowship and Homewood Arts at JHU.

If all of this isn’t enough incentive, free snacks and refreshments will be provided.
