in the memory of the forest

[ODC/Dance's] Artistic Director Brenda Way’s new work is inspired by the experience of her late mother-in-law, Iza Erlich, who, as a teenager in 1941, walked away from Warsaw. With a girlfriend, she set out across Poland, Germany and Russia to find her future husband who had departed months earlier. Iza recorded her memories on a set of four audiotapes and always imagined that her story might be material for a dance. “Iza, a social worker by trade, believed in the power of art to communicate emotional experience,” said Ms. Way.
