This week, Arts.21 explores the Jewish legacy in Ukraine. We visit designer Rolf Sachs in his studio and actor Philipp Hochmair backstage. We also show you what happens when German and Indian dancers meet up. Off to Kolkata!
The bustling Indian city of Kolkata plays host to an intriguing dance production. Berlin-based choreographer Sasha Waltz has joined forces with her Indian colleague Padmini Chettur for "Dialoge 2013 — Kolkata," mixing two dance traditions and two cultures, with an imposing palace as a stage. Arts.21 reveals the result.
In our series "Traces of the Past", Arts.21 reporters travel the globe searching for the legacy left to different countries by German Jews. This week we’re in Ukraine, where two young film students are documenting the revival of Jewish culture in their home country.
