You can read a news article about the ballet, which was recently performed in Palm Beach, Florida here: http://www.palmbeachdailynews.com/news/news/local/full-evening-ballet-sheds-light-on-the-holocaust/nn8tq/#sthash.ZKZLhGkP.dpuf
Where else would one put on a Holocaust ballet? Palm Beach, Florida is where many of the Holocaust survivors now live the good life, which they earned by surviving the Holocaust.
The following quote is from the news article:
During the two years [Stephan] Mills researched the ballet, he visited eight concentration camps, traveled to Israel, pored through archives and interviewed 15 survivors. Houston survivor Naomi Warren’s experience serves as the underlying narrative.
The moments that made the biggest impact on Mills were personal.
He recalls sitting in a gas chamber at Auschwitz in Poland, marveling at the beauty of the light reflected off the walls while considering the horrors that took place there. “They shoved in as many adults as would go, and when there was no more room they shoved the children and babies on top,” he said.
That sensation of entrapment found its way into the ballet in a 12-minute section set to a soundscape of wailing sirens.
Note that Stephen recalls SITTING in the gas chamber at Auschwitz. Was he sitting on the concrete floor? There were no chairs in the gas chamber on the two occasions when I was there, but chairs may have been added now for famous people.
