Will to Create, Will to Live: The Culture of Terezín


Writing on Twitter yesterday, Alex Ross, music critic at The New Yorker, informed readers: “An important series on the music and culture of Terezín begins this weekend at @92Y”.

Will to Create, Will to Live: The Culture of Terezín is a dynamic interdisciplinary series that reveals the significance of Terezín—a transition camp/ghetto in occupied Bohemia during World War II. The series represents a “new approach for premier arts institution,” The Jewish Week remarked, continuing:

When the 92nd Street Y launches its ambitious five-week-long project, on Jan. 9, it will mark a significant change in the way one of the city’s most esteemed arts institutions does its work. For the first time in its history, the Y’s Tisch Center for the Arts is drawing on nearly all of the resources of 92Y’s many departments to present an interdisciplinary series of programs that will include concerts, lectures, readings, classes, film screenings and dance performances.

For example, January 15 brings Following in the Footsteps, a a dance pick in The New Yorker‘s Goings On About Town. Following in the Footsteps is a free event. Join dance scholars Judith Brin Ingber and Judith Chazin-Bennahum for presentations about the legacy of Jewish figures in dance. The conversation and questions will be moderated by dance critic Mindy Aloff, beginning at 3 pm, followed by book signings and reception.

The cornerstone of Will to Create, Will to Live: The Culture of Terezín is a four-concert series with the Nash Ensemble of London, baritone Wolfgang Holzmair and pianists Shai Wosner and Russell Ryan performing music primarily played and written in Terezín itself.
