Hidden is the newest work in Rachel Linsky’s ongoing series “ZACHOR,” which seeks to preserve Holocaust survivor testimony through contemporary dance.
“Hidden” is inspired by the story of Aaron Elster, who survived at the mercy of a Polish family who kept him hidden in their attic for two years.
“Hidden” has been developed through a highly collaborative creative process geared towards creating a resonant and embodied Holocaust education experience for the artists involved in the work. This piece tackles the pressing question of what the future of Holocaust education might look like, especially in this pivotal time where so few survivors are left to tell their stories first-hand.
Performers include “ZACHOR”’s cast of professional dancers, as well as a cohort of teenage dancers who participated in ZACHOR’s free, week-long Embodied Holocaust Education Workshop series.
Each show will be followed by a short Q&A session between audience, artists, and Aaron’s son Steven Elster who now shares his father’s story as a second generation speaker.
“Hidden” is supported by a grant from the Combined Jewish Philanthropies Arts & Culture Community Impact Grant Fund, The Beker Foundation, and by New Work New England of the New England Foundation for the Arts, 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.+ More... - Less...
