Award-winning ‘Hiding Place’ to be performed Feb. 13

Witness the inspirational ballet that has toured three continents: “Hiding Place” — a ballet inspired by the true story of Corrie ten Boom during the Jewish Holocaust of the 1940s. 

Hope in the face of suffering.  Bravery in the midst of despair.  Choreographer/artistic director Jiri Sebastian Voborsky’s “Hiding Place” follows the struggle of two sisters, Corrie and Betsie ten Boom, as they help their life-long Jewish neighbors and friends find security in a small hiding place built in the wall of their home, only to be discovered and transported to the concentration camp of Ravensbruck to face struggles far exceeding their wildest imagination. 

Premiered in 2006, “Hiding Place” has been performed across the country and internationally, including performances in Israel before holocaust survivors, in front of the very Polish gates through which the Germans invaded Europe to initiate WW II, and the National Theater in Tegucigalpa, Honduras — receiving an award from the Minister of Culture.
