7pm Dylan Fresco: The Holocaust and Me
Dylan Fresco's performance "The Holocaust and Me" is the story of how Dylan came to realize the impact of the Holocaust on his family and his own life, despite his being born decades after it happened. The performance includes music accompanied by guitar and sung in Ladino, a language based on medieval Spanish and Hebrew that is spoken by many Sephardic Jews. Dylan will facilitate a critical reflection period afterward.
About Dylan: Dylan Fresco is a musician and theater artist who works as a writer, performer, and educator with a diverse array of communities and arts partners. His work takes place in theaters, classrooms, community centers, and even on neighborhood sidewalks. A graduate of Carleton College and the Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theatre, Dylan has created solo performances that have been sold-out hits at Fringe Festivals across the country. He has written songs and helped create plays in the Twin Cities with Upstream Arts and Children’s Theatre Company, and he's worked in partnership with multiple organizations serving people with disabilities. He recently helped lead the creation of the original play “Birds Sing Differently Here," which premiered at the Guthrie Theater, in collaboration with a group of Iraqi-Americans and the Iraqi and American Reconciliation Project. Dylan's work has received support from Rimon: The Minnesota Jewish Arts Council, Springboard for the Arts, the Arts on Chicago Initiative, the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, and the MN State Arts Board.
Tickets for the event are $10 adults, $5 youth, for sale in advance at www.tix.com (no fees, search "Arrowhead Center for the Arts") and at the door on the night of the show, starting at 6 pm.
