The "Broucci" performance at the Sokol Center in St. Paul will be Sunday, May 15, 2016 at 3:00. Join us at 383 Michigan Street, St. Paul, MN 55102. Come see this unique performance in Minnesota's jewel of a theatre, the oldest, built in 1882.
Judith will be working with dancer Blanka Brichta and theater director Lenka Braag at the Czech Slovak Sokol Minnesota to re-create the musical Broucci, or Fireflies. Based on a Czech folktale, Broucci was originally created by artists imprisoned by the Nazis at the Terezin camp for the children and their Jewish families also imprisoned there. There will be appropriate age-level material exploring the history of what Czech Jewish children and their families experienced during World War II. Judith brings new research to the production, including her interviews in Tel Aviv with Vera Meisels, one of the children in the Terezin Camp Broucci production who miraculously survived. Sokol musicians and adult dancers with Czech performers from New Prague will augment the children performing in the upcoming May 15th production. For further information contact Lenka Braag.
Judith is proud to announce that she has contributed much of her archives from her dance career--videos/DVDs of her performances, photographs, papers from professional conferences, drafts of her books, correspondence, and other components of her work relating to her teaching--to the Performing Arts Archives at the University of Minnesota Libraries--where it will be put online and coordinate with Judith's contributions to the Dance Library of Israel and the Batsheva Dance Company archives, also online.
Judith is available for teaching special dance classes incorporating Jewish imagery and movement with inspiration from Judaism, (combined with her experience in yoga, Alexander technique and modern dance).
