When Anne Frank received a diary for her thirteenth birthday, she had no idea that her writings would come to symbolize the triumph of the human spirit to people all over the world. When reading her diary, one is touched by the humanity of her story, and how she, in spite of the very extreme circumstances she lived under, was so similar to any other teenager. This is what makes her story so real and so close to us all.

On March 3rd 2012, Ballet Quad Cities will present the encore performance of an original ballet choreographed by Johanne Jakhelln in connection with the traveling exhibit, Anne Frank: A History for Today, and other related programming, created to counter  indifference, prejudice, and racism, as well as to promote the dignity, democratic beliefs, and human rights that are critical in our diverse society today.

The diary comes to life through expressive music from Jewish composers of the 1940’s. Contemporary choreography along with superb acting makes this a performance you won’t want to miss.

Length of Performance: 60 minutes
