Last dance( Visual )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documentary on the genesis of A selection, a dance work created in collaboration by Pilobolus Dance Theatre and Maurice Sendak and Arthur Yorinks of the Night Kitchen Theater. Beginning with the first rehearsals for the work, the film explores the complex and occasionally troubled interaction between the dance company, known for its innovative collaborative approach to choreography, and Sendak, an eminent author and illustrator. Archival footage from Nazi Germany depicts the inspiration for the work, a dance of death evoking the evils of the Jewish Holocaust. The film follows A selection from its presentation as a work-in-progress at Purchase College's Performing Arts Center to its world premiere at the American Dance Festival in Durham, N.C., and its New York premiere at the Joyce Theater. A sequence of performance excerpts from the work conclude the film

Brundibár un opéra de Hans Krása, d'après le livret d'Adolf Hoffmeister by Hans Krása( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aninka et Pépicek sont des enfants juits, qui vivent à Prague, envahi par l'armée allemande, dans les années 40. Les nazis traquent le peuple juif. Leur mère tombe malade et elle a besoin de lait. Ils décident de chanter dans la rue. Mais Brundibar, un musicien de rue, les accueille plutôt très mal. Malgré sa condition sociale, il a une nature de dictateur et chante des chansons de propagande nazie. "Cet opéra pour enfants, interprété par des enfants, fut, pendant la Seconde Guerre Mondiale, un symbole d'espoir pour tous les déportés du camp de Terezin, en Tchécoslovaquie. Sa fraîcheur et son optimisme ont, depuis, traversé le temps et les frontières. Ce livre/CD propose aussi des documents pour apprendre, des partitions pour chanter les plus beaux airs de l'opéra" (4e de couverture). Cet opéra a été créé clandestinement dans un orphelinat de Prague en hiver 1942-43. Il a été joué dans le ghetto modèle de Theresienstadt, où étaient déportés la plupart des artistes ayant particpé à sa création
