“Hidden”, the newest contemporary dance work in ZACHOR, 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 Embodied Holocaust Education Workshop Series.
“Hidden” is supported by Combined Jewish Philanthropies, The Beker Foundation, and by New Work New England of the New England Foundation for the Arts.
