Choreography by Ballet Austin Artistic Director Stephen Mills
Music by Steve Reich, Evelyn Glennie, Michael Gordon, Arvo Pärt and Philip Glass

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 Holocaust survivor Naomi Warren's story 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.

Stay after the performance for a talkback with Ballet Austin Artistic Director/Choreographer Stephen Mills, Nashville Ballet Artistic Director & CEO Paul Vasterling and Tennessee Human Rights Commission Executive Director Beverly Watts.

Additional community programming will accompany this Nashville Ballet premiere, including an open rehearsal viewing and a panel discussion curated by the Tennessee Human Rights Commission. Click here for a full listing of events.
