A ballet about the Holocaust to remember and educate

Listen /

Ballet Austin

The human body can tell stories without words, according to a choreographer who uses dance to educate about the Holocaust.

"Light/The Holocaust & Humanity Project" is a full-length contemporary ballet that recounts the journey of a Holocaust survivor.

Stephen Mills created the project in 2005 as a way to engage a community and create dialogue about World War II and other issues of genocide and hate crimes.

He was at United Nations Headquarters on Monday to present a video of the dance.

Stephanie Coutrix asked Mr Mills how he uses music and dance to spread his message.

Duration: 4’00″
