“L’Dor Vador: Poetry and Dance from Three Generations of a Jewish Family”

Sunday, Apr. 10, 2016

03:00 PM
US/Central

Ldor Vador- Photographer Lynn Lane-120w

L’Dor Vador” will pay tribute to nationally recognized Jewish writers Hans and Ilse Juergensen - Holocaust refugees from Germany who have published 15 volumes of poetry between them. Their only child, Claudia Juergensen Noble, who now resides in the Houston area, became a poet and playwright with eight theatrical productions. Their grandson, Andy Noble, co-directs NobleMotion Dance, which was recently titled “Houston’s Best Dance Company.” This project highlights three generations of artists and tells the story of a family’s journey from battled Europe to the J’s Kaplan Theatre.

The original evening of work performed by NobleMotion Dance will pay tribute to the traditions, memories, nightmares, struggles and fables that are shared so eloquently through the Juergensen’s poetry. It is Andy and Claudia’s hope that people of all ages and cultures can relate to the subject matter that enlivens the past and present through text and movement.

A pre-show talk with be conducted prior to each performance.
