Art and Legacy with Carolyn Dorfman Dance
Carolyn Dorfman Dance uses performance, multimedia presentation, and interactive dialogue to take you on a journey of faith, survival, and renewal. Renowned choreographer Carolyn Dorfman speaks about her inspiration for The Legacy Project, a celebrated body of work that honors her Eastern European roots, her Jewish heritage, and portrays the story of the immigrant experience. With depth, humor, and reverence, Ms. Dorfman draws upon her rich Jewish legacy – its history, philosophy, traditions, gestures, music, and liturgy – to create work that is honestly personal yet powerfully universal.
