A Wider Bridge, an LGBTQ advocacy group in Israel, is hosting the dance group c.a.t.a.m.o.n. on June 3 and 4 in Brooklyn for performance of new show "Urfa."
"Something profound is happening in Jerusalem, and c.a.t.a.m.o.n. is a key part of the city's cultural renaissance," Wider Bridge executive director Arthur Slepian said. "The movement is fueled by a new generation of Jerusalemites, many from the city's LGBTQ community, who are seeking change through the medium of art.
After New York, c.a.t.a.m.o.n. will travel to San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.
"Through arts and culture that challenge the boundaries of religion, race, gender, and sexuality, these young artists are cultivating a new and hopeful environment of pluralism, diversity and understanding in a city that has seen much tension and division," Slepian said.
