Calling all teen dancers in the Boston area! This summer, ZACHOR is hosting a week-long “Embodied Holocaust Education” workshop for intermediate/advanced dancers ages 14-18.

In this five-day workshop, students will take daily classes in contemporary technique, improvisation and composition. They will read and discuss the memoir of Holocaust survivor Aaron Elster and participate in a collaborative process to build a five-minute piece of choreography inspired by their reflections. Participants will perform alongside ZACHOR’s cast of professional dancers in the premiere of “Hidden” at the Boston Center for the Arts on Oct. 20-22, 2022.

ZACHOR is a Boston-based project series that seeks to preserve the words of World War II Holocaust survivors through dance. ZACHOR creates opportunities for diverse groups of artists and audiences to study and reflect on these testimonies in a non-religious setting. Director Rachel Linsky strongly believes that Holocaust education, especially when explored through the universal language of movement, has the power to bring people together to find common goals that bridge pre-existing divisions.

This project is supported by a grant from CJP’s Arts & Culture Community Impact Grant Fund, The Beker Foundation and New Work New England of the New England Foundation for the Arts. It is made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Seedlings Foundation, the Fund for the Arts at NEFA, the American Rescue Plan, Anonymous Foundation and from individual donors.
