SUPER FINAL HAMAPAH POSTCARD FRONT-RIP-A

Conceived and performed by Adam McKinney
Directed by Daniel Banks
Original Lighting Design by Lenore Doxsee
Video editing by Michael Billow
Costume by Irina Kruzhilina


In Hebrew, HaMapah / המפה means “the tablecloth” or “the map." HaMapah / המפה weaves contemporary dance with archival material, personal interviews, Yiddish and American songs, and video set to traditional, contemporary, and classical music. In HaMapah / המפה, McKinney explores issues of culture, self-hood, and community.

In exploring his African, Jewish, and Native American heritages, McKinney dances the personal and the collective, the local and the global, and the present and the past. HaMapah/המפה invites audiences to consider and envision the possibility of a global Jewish identity.

As part of the program, immediately following the performance, DNAWORKS Co-Directors McKinney and Banks will lead a community dialogue with the audience about the core ideas of the piece.
