I Sing for Bathsheba: Looking for God in Drag

Sunday, November 24, 2 p.m. | Studio Z (275 E 4th St, #200, St Paul) | Cost: $12 ($6 for ages 36 and under)


Max Yeshaye Brumberg-Kraus is drawn to drag as a way to subvert conventional gender roles and to provoke self-awareness. In his monologue series I Sing for Bathsheba, he explores the intersection of drag performance and texts from the Bible-especially the voices of women as written by men. Artist-scholar Noam Sienna joins Max for a conversation about the search for the sacred and lifting up marginalized voices in our midst.

Sign language interpretation is available upon request with 10 days advance notice.
