WHAT: A contemporary dance performance by Chaddick Dance Theater that explores the issues of human rights and the importance of peaceful coexistence in our modern world. “Dark to Light” is part of the three month-long
Light / The Holocaust & Humanity Project, a full-length contemporary ballet and Holocaust education partnership that promotes the protection of human rights against bigotry and hate through arts, education and public dialogue.
The four-part performance will incorporate Chaddick Dance Theater’s organic, full-body style and signature theatrical expression with such deep-seated cultural and personal issues as spirituality, human rights and bigotry. In addition to the four performance pieces, “Dark to Light” will feature video interviews and testimonials from survivors and other witnesses of the Holocaust as they share memories of their experiences, and their eventual triumph over the tragedy.
