NobleMotion Dance, one of Texas’s premier contemporary dance companies, is joining forces with the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center of Houston to produce L’Dor Vador: An Evening of Poetry and Dance.

This poignant evening weaves haunting poetry and luscious movement to tell the story of of a Jewish family's journey from World War II Europe to the theaters of East Texas. Choreographers Andy and Dionne Noble and poet Claudia Juergensen Noble collaborate on this evening inspired by the writings of nationally recognized poets Hans and Ilse Juergensen. Andy, Dionne, and Claudia aspire to pay tribute to the personal memories, nightmares, and fantasies that are shared so eloquently through the Juergensen’s poetry.

Hans and Ilse Juergensen were Holocaust refugees from Germany - and extraordinary poets. Between them 15 volumes were published. Their only child, Claudia Juergensen Noble became a poet and playwright with eight theatrical productions. The third generation of artists brought Andy Noble, choreographer and co-founder of NobleMotion Dance in Houston.
