“Discoveries: A New Way Forward”

October 1- November 7

Photography by Micah Groberman
Featuring Evan Groberman

As COVID closed the world down, Micah Groberman turned his photography hobby into a passion. He took pictures of the thing that the pandemic couldn’t touch: the natural world around us. Through his exploration, he found himself discovering new passions, new skills and a new way forward. And while looking for COVID-friendly activities and teaching opportunities with his sons, he realized that his eldest son Evan was also discovering a love and keen eye for photography.

Tamara Micner

Chutzpah! Festival favourite Tamara Micner transforms her theatrical work-in-progress into an installation, creating an intimate, immersive experience. Come and listen individually to Micner reading letters written to Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel and reflecting on how their music informs her feelings about friendship, activism, Jewishness, and art.
