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.

Mar 21

Multimedia Performance: Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky’s The Book of Ice 

Pollak Theatre - 6 PM

Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky, will visit Monmouth University to present his The Book of Ice—a multimedia performance and discussion he will stage with musicians from campus. Antarctica, the only uninhabited continent, belongs to no single country, and has no government. While certain countries lay claim to portions of the landmass, it is the only solid land on the planet with no unified national affiliation. Drawing on the continent’s rich history of inspiring exploration and artistic endeavors, Miller has put together his own multidisciplinary study of Antarctica. The Book of Ice is one aspect of this ongoing project. In this talk, Miller discusses his journeys to Antarctica, climate change, and the creation of The Book of Ice, using Antarctica-related data to create maps, graphics, sound, music and multimedia performances.
