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 to issues relevant in today’s society. Community talk-back sessions will accompany this Nashville Ballet premiere.
