01 Sep Collaboration with RJC Dance in 2016
We’re very excited to be working in partnership with RJC Dance and the University of Leeds, to develop a dance performance relating to the history of the Holocaust. Working with young performers at RJC Dance to debate the relevance of the Holocaust for the present day and how this relevance can be expressed creatively, the performance marks the Blahs’ first dance piece.
The performance will be directed by Anthony Haddon and choreographed by Dance Artist Nillanthe Morton.
The University’s Professor Stuart Taberner has won a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council for the outreach project ‘Engaging Young Black Britons with the Relevance of the Holocaust’, enabling this partnership to happen.
Other partners are the UK National Holocaust Centre and Museum and the Holocaust Survivors’ Friendship Association.
The performance will be staged at the University of Leeds’ Workshop Theatre in early May 2016. Members of the public will be welcome, as well as postgraduates from across the UK and Germany attending a conference in Leeds. The performance will also be staged at RJC Dance and the UK National Holocaust Centre.
