Ballet Austin's Light / The Holocaust & Humanity Project is hailed by the Austin American-Statesman as "visually and emotionally gripping" and a "masterful exposition on one of history's darkest episodes." Light / The Holocaust & Humanity Project is a full-length contemporary ballet and Holocaust education partnership that promotes the protection of human rights against bigotry and hate through arts, education, and public dialogue.
When it premiered in 2005, Light / The Holocaust & Humanity Project brought national attention to Ballet Austin and was restaged by the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. Now in 2012, Light / The Holocaust & Humanity Project has nearly 50 community partners holding events/initiatives through April 19 (Yom HaShoah or Holocaust Remembrance Day). For more information about the community-wide initiative, with a continuously updated calendar, visit www.balletaustin.org/light.
Ballet Austin's Light / The Holocaust & Humanity Project returns to the stage March 23-25 at The Long Center. Tickets to the full length performance start at $15 can can be purchased here.
