The purpose of this environmental-justice performance is to generate cross-cultural, interdisciplinary, interfaith dialogue and Jewish-themed action. Reclaiming ancient Judaic spiritual-pharmacopeias, agricultural and architectural environmental engineering practices can be one resolution for systemic oppressions in our triple pandemic of racism, climate crisis, and Covid-19. This performance (that includes Ladino proverbs) is intended to illuminate the intersections of history, geography, ethics and symbiosis between Jewish diversity and biodiversity. While encouraging individuals and communities to resist industrialized consumer-waste culture, this action-based performance is rooted in Sephardic and Mizrahi histories. It offers psychological, behavioral, and infrastructural design shifts that embody indigenous spiritual wisdom/spiritual intelligence from the Middle East.
