CAROLYN DORFMAN DANCE: The Legacy Project: A Dance Of Hope

Feb 25

CAROLYN DORFMAN DANCE: The Legacy Project: A Dance Of Hope 

Pollak Theatre - 4 PM

Acclaimed choreographer and storyteller Carolyn Dorfman has created an exultant “dance-theatre” trilogy that connects us through our common human experience. Told through the lens of a child of a Holocaust survivor, the choreography illustrates the devastation, yet inspires hope as immigrants journey to a new land that promises new beginnings! Our deepest desires for peace, freedom and family are illuminated in this triumphant work that will make you cry, laugh, think and celebrate the capacity of the human spirit to rise above all circumstance. Described by critics as “ingenious” (The Star-Ledger) and “emotionally resonant” (The New York Times), the dance in the Legacy Project brings together Dorfman’s family stories, Jewish history and a universal struggle for identity. This event is part of the Jewish Cultural Studies Program.
