Israeli choreographer Idan Cohen brings his dance company to American University to perform excerpts of his latest work, Mad Siren, set to the sound of W.A. Mozart's solo piano sonatas. Called "one of the more talented representatives of today's young, independent choreographers" by the Jerusalem Post, Idan will discuss the influences in this latest work, which raises questions about "immigration, personal, and collective history and the nature of fear and lack of understanding towards what is different."
Sponsored by the Bender Foundation in memory of the late Sondra D. Bender, longtime American University trustee. Cosponsored by AU Center for Israel Studies, AU Performing Arts Department Dance Program, and Embassy of Israel.
