The video, 'Old Family Footage', portrays my parents and their friends – all Holocaust survivors – as well as myself as a little girl, dancing freely in a forest.
This footage illustrates how both dancing and my parents’ positive attitude to life have been woven into my own life.
Growing up, I was always present while my parents danced. As an adult, it seemed a natural process to merge the two influences that have shaped my life – that of my parents’ story and that of dance – hence the project, ‘Dancing Auschwitz.’
