A One-Night Only Immersive Theater Experience Featuring Cocktails, Bites, and More
Thursday, December 22, 2022 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Distillery of Modern Art, an amalgamation of distillery, gallery, event space and cocktail lounge, presents The Golem: Storms of the South, an immersive theater experience on Thursday, December 22, 2022 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. For one evening only, guests can take a journey into a 19th-century New York marketplace where Jewish immigrants are busy selling their wares on the last day of Hanukkah. Incredible real-life stories will be revealed of how they escaped the Storms of the South, ten years of persecution in Western Russia, and discovered freedom upon reaching American, but brought with them something they could never have imagined – tormented and tortured ghosts of the villagers’ past. The audience will then join Rabbi Bezalel as he summons up a Golem, a Frankenstein-like creature, to rid the village of its demons, but nothing goes as planned.
“The Golem: Storms of the South is essentially a story of love and forgiveness. In order to move forward from dark times in their life, the villagers must forgive themselves, and their past,” says creator Louis Kyper of The Immersive Theatre Ensemble. “They must then let the light of love guide their way forward. No amount of artificially conjured technologies will help them understand that. It’s a simple story, but one worth telling.”
In addition to the intimate show, guests are also invited to sip on Distillery of Modern Arts’ signature cocktails and enjoy appetizers from The General Muir, a modern American restaurant inspired by the classic New York Jewish Deli. General Admission tickets are $75 per person and include one drink ticket, post-show appetizers, and a custom Golem rocks glass. The VIP Experience is $250 for two tickets and includes private pre-show entertainment, pre-show appetizers, a post-show celebration, enhanced performer interaction, two drink tickets, a collectible bottle of Distillery of Modern Art’s Atlanta Vodka, and two Golem rocks glasses.
