Out of the Shadows: Rediscovering Jewish Music, Literature and Theater is the day-long inaugural performance event produced by the United Kingdom’s Arts and Humanities Research Council large grant, Performing the Jewish Archive. The University of Wisconsin–Madison and the City of Madison are uniquely situated as the sole hosts for our project’s performance events within the United States. The vision for this project is firmly rooted within the arts and humanities, the idea that difficult questions regarding the human condition are sometimes best posed, explored, and answered through the coming-together of people and art, music, literature, theater.
