Carolyn Dorfman Dance Company to
Perform and Discuss the Legacy Project at Swarthmore College
by Anita Pace
The William J. Cooper Foundation and Swarthmore College will present a lecture and performance by the Carolyn Dorfman Dance Company, Thurs., Jan. 29, and Fri., Jan. 30. Both events are free and open to the public.
A child of Holocaust survivors, Dorfman feels an intense connection to her history and what it means to the future, both with regard to the Jewish Diaspora and to the world community. The Legacy Project brings together Dorfman's family stories, Jewish history, and a universal struggle for identity through dances that serve as metaphors for the greater truths of the human experience. With inventive choreography, original music compositions, and evocative metaphors, the Carolyn Dorfman Dance Company "offers [the] audience the dance equivalent of a cherished book of family photographs" (The New York Times).
Schedule of events:
- Thurs., Jan. 29 at 1:15 p.m., Kohlberg, Scheuer Room: Lecture Creating Art as a Child of Survivors: An Interactive and Multimedia Presentation of Legacy and Art by Carolyn Dorfman
- Fri., Jan. 30, 8:00 p.m., Lang Performing Arts Center, Pearson Hall Theatre: Performance The Legacy Project
