The second production of NYC-based company The Woolgatherers, Genesis 22 seeks to unlock new layers of meaning from a classic tale of humanity and faith.
Is Abraham, the parent who nearly sacrifices his child, a person of faith or a brutal killer?
With a diverse group of young, ambitious artists, Genesis 22 is an experiment in collaboration and a fresh way of making theater. Our creative team features six directors, each of whom approaches their art with a distinct style and methodology. By exploring an old story through the intersection of their artistic forms, we hope to discover a deeper understanding of this story of faith.
