Judith Brin Ingber is included in the forthcoming documentary film "Mr. Gaga" about the remarkable work and life of Ohad Naharin, director of the Batsheva Dance Company and creator of Gaga dance. The soon to be released film is by Tomer and Barak Heymann.

Judith is continuing her research on children's performances in the Terezin Ghetto outside Prague during World War II and working on a recreation of "Fireflies" or "Broucci" for performances in the 2015/2016 school year.

This amazing musical was created with the imprisoned children by several original artists including the visionary director Vava Schonova (who survived WWII and made it to Israel, becoming the well known theatre director Navah Shean), set and costume designer Friedl Dicker-Brandeis with help from the child actors (Friedl was the beloved children's art teacher who was deported and murdered in Auschwitz), composer Karel Svenk (leading figure in Terezin's cabaret who died en route to the Mauthausen Camp) and choreographer Kamila Rosenbaumova.
