Nashville Ballet's Attitude: Light: The Holocaust and Humanity Project


Attitude: Light: The Holocaust and Humanity Project

February 9-11, 2018
TPAC’s Polk Theater

Choreography by Ballet Austin Artistic Director Stephen Mills
Music by Steve Reich, Evelyn Glennie, Michael Gordon, Arvo Pärt and Philip Glass

Pushing the boundaries of Nashville Ballet’s acclaimed Attitude series, Light: The Holocaust and Humanity Project offers a groundbreaking exploration of devastating loss, resiliency and, ultimately, the triumph of the human spirit. Following one Holocaust survivor’s journey as told through music and dance, Light offers a unique opportunity that only art can—to feel, better understand and reflect upon a piece of history that defies comprehension. The ballet illuminates the past to promote compassion, understanding and hope for our future. Community talk-back sessions will accompany this Nashville Ballet premiere, including Light choreographer Stephen Mills of Ballet Austin.
