LABA Presents: Grandfather Visit
LABA Presents: Grandfather Visit – A dance testimony piece in the memory of Prof. Kalman Perk

LABA Fellow Doron Perk talks about his grandfather Kalman and shares fragments of his solo dance performance inspired by his many visits with him, the stories he told, the things they talked about, and the way they sat and had tea.

In July of 1944, in a crowded cattle wagon headed to the death camps, 14-year-old Kalman was chosen by his family to survive by escaping through the narrow window. As his grandchild, Doron chooses to keep his memory alive by using his moving body as a vessel for feelings and sensations he remembers having while being together.
