NewsPress Release -Tamar Rogoff Presents "Summer In Ivye"
MARLBORO, VT - On Monday, April 9th at 7:30 pm in Marlboro College's Whittemore Theater, Tamar Rogoff will present and discuss the film she directed with Daisy Wright, "Summer in Ivye."
Recently shown at the Walter Reade Theater in New York City to soldout crowds, "Summer in Ivye," tells of an American choreographer who, after discovering the fate of her Jewish family, formerly from Belarus, during the Holocaust, stages a large-scale theater production in their tiny town of Ivye. She brings together an unlikely mix of actors, dancers, musicians, and local townspeople to recreate scenes of life in the vibrant Jewish town of Ivye before World War II. This film looks with warmth and humor at the ability of people to transcend differences in language, culture, and religion to retell a story that had been kept secret for over 50 years. The film is accompanied by music by Frank London of the popular Klezmer band The Klezmatics.
This event is free and open to the public, and the Whittemore Theater is fully accessible. For more information on this or any other Marlboro College event, please call (802) 257-4333 or go online to www.marlboro.edu.
