Beyond Me: A Song Cycle in the Key of Survival
November 17, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$18 - $36
This is a vibrant theater piece, created and performed by Suzanne Tanner, celebrates the courageous life of St. Louis’ own Rachel Goldman Miller and her ability to overcome immeasurable loss, including her family to the Holocaust and her son to AIDS. Rachel is also a breast cancer survivor. Rachel lost 93 family members – including her mother, Helen; her sister, Sabine; and her brothers, Henry and Adolphe. All were rounded up and deported to Auschwitz in the summer of 1942.
This multi-media musical biography combines musical, visual and physical elements to expand the stage to the reaches of history and reality. It is a psychological exploration, interweaving personal testimony, dramatic song, documentary footage and contemporary art into a tapestry of emotion and understanding. This event is co-sponsored by the Holocaust Museum and Learning Center, Jewish Community Center and The Breast Cancer Coalition.
