"VISUALLY AND EMOTIONALLY GRIPPING.
A masterful exposition on one of history's darkest episodes.” Austin-American Stateman
Set to the sweeping, spellbinding music of Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Arvo Pärt and others, Light/The Holocaust & Humanity Project catapulted Ballet Austin into the front ranks of American ballet companies following its 2005 premiere. Considered Artistic Director Stephen Mills' masterwork, it is a profound and enriching exploration - inspired by one woman's stirring journey of survival - of the courage, resilience and perseverance required to endure and rebuild life after unimaginable loss.
A full-evening contemporary ballet that turns the spotlight on discrimination and the ultimate triumph of the human spirit, Light/The Holocaust & Humanity Project offers a timely reminder of the importance of the protection of human rights. As such, Ballet Austin's performances are the culminating events of a three-month community-wide human rights focus and Holocaust education partnership that promotes awareness of the work in our community for the protection of human rights against bigotry and hate through performances, arts education and public dialogue.
