About the Program
Be mesmerized by this indie-folk, art-pop song cycle by Alicia Jo Rabins, whose voice has been described as “gorgeous” by the New York Times, in an intimate performance in the Visions and Values galleries.
Beautifully weaving together poetry, violin, a loop pedal, and feminist Torah scholarship, Rabins explores the hidden places where the stories of biblical women overlap with her own. Hear a selection of songs as well as poetry from her new collection, Divinity School (winner of the 2015 American Poetry Review/Honickman First Book Prize).
“Divinity School is an astonishing find: a poetry page-turner, both sexy and humble.”—San Francisco Chronicle
