THE JÜDISCHE KULTURBUND PROJECT
Multimedia Presentation and Live Musical Performance
in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut and the
Rabin Chair Forum of George Washington University

Thursday Nov. 10, 2016 at 12:00

Pickford Theater, Madison Building, Library of Congress

A mime performance directed by choreographer and dancer Hannah Kroner. This was the last performance by the cast in the Kulturbund.

The Jüdische Kulturbund Project tells the story of Jewish musicians and performing artists who organized in 1933 Nazi Germany and performed until the Final Solution in 1941.  Featuring stories based on filmed interviews with members of this unique group and contemporary artists living around the world, the project explores stories of heroic stands for artistic freedom and response to unjust control and repression. Project director/creator, Gail Prensky, will present with live music performances by Sarah Baumgarten and Patrick O'Donnell.  To understand the project's vision of how the Kulturbund is relevant today, see a short video at https://www.judischekulturbund.com/shared-stories/.
