Bill Conover, Susan Rice, Rabbi Shlomo Wing and I are planning a special event on Holocaust Remembrance Day, May 1, 2011.
As part of this event dancers will perform Wreath of Memories, the 30 minute theater/dance piece I choreographed inspired by children in the Terezin Concentration Camp. This is the piece we performed at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in D.C. in 2002 and in Moscow, Russia in 2004.
I will be looking for up to 20 dancers and actors (everyone dances in the piece, some parts are also speaking roles) to help me re-stage the dance.
Rehearsals will begin after break and continue through until the performance on May 1.
