This contemporary dance work seeks to revive and honor the music of Erwin Schulhoff, a Jewish composer and Holocaust victim. A radical artist of his time, Schulhoff was one of the first European musicians to incorporate jazz into traditional music forms. The Nazis deemed jazz and all forms of modern art a threat to their ideology and sought to completely erase from history the work of Schulhoff and many other artistic trailblazers. This performance celebrates the survival and legacy of Schulhoff’s music while investigating the Nazis’ ban on art forms that embraced freedom of expression and created pathways to share new ideas, perspectives and voices.
“Schulhoff” is the newest work in Rachel Linsky’s ongoing project series, “Zachor,” which seeks to preserve the memories of World War II Holocaust survivors and victims through dance. Visit rachellinsky.com/zachor to learn more and see past works created in this series.
