Carolyn Dorfman Dance will present “The Legacy Project: A Dance of Hope” at Kean University, Jan. 28.

The Union-based Carolyn Dorfman Dance company will present “The Legacy Project: A Dance of Hope,” Jan. 28 at 4 p.m. at The Wilkins Theatre at Kean University in Union, in commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which is Jan. 27.

The work will combine contemporary dance with interactive dialogue and, according to a press release, “honors Dorfman’s Eastern European roots, tragedy of the Holocaust, Jewish heritage, and the immigrant experience. … This work speaks to our ongoing issues with immigration, acceptance of others and learning to acknowledge and celebrate both our uniqueness and common humanness.”

Dorfman, a child of Holocaust survivors, said in the press release that “Each work is a ladle dipped into a historical cauldron of faith, loss, survival, and renewal. Each bears the mark of the trials and triumphs of my people and all peoples.”
