Based on The Talmud and Kung-Fu films, Meta-Phys Ed.'s THE TALMUD is a genre-bending performance that draws from a century of Chinese martial arts cinema, and, a single chapter of The Talmud-a 5th century text of Rabbinic Judaism. Featuring innovative production design, live Kung-Fu movie cinematography and choreographed Talmudic debate, THE TALMUD is a confounding exploration of sacred wisdom and how ancient traditions survive the dangerous journey across generations. The production stars Lucie Allouche, Abrielle Kuo, Eli M. Schoenfeld, Jae Woo and Lu Liu on Pipa.
The production features compositions by Avi Amon, pipa compositions by Lu Liu & Avi Amon, scenic design by Kyu Shin, projection design by Lacey Erb, costume design by Karen Boyer, and lighting design by Yi-Chung Chen. Eamon Goodman is the sound designer, Gil Sperling designed the original video concepts and Joanne Au is the stage manager.
