The Breman in conjunction with the Ballethnic Dance Company has commissioned a series of dances based on the works of the prominent artists featured in A Jazz Memoir: The Photography of Herb Snitzer. Join us for a night of dance for the cost of donation. Any size donation will grant you access to the event, as little as 1 cent or as much as you like.
 
The piece called 'Jazzing: Memoirs in Jazz' is inspired by the photo exhibition and discussions with Herb about his experience, particuarly with Jazz artists and navigating through life with these musical geniuses during racial inequity and the Civil Rights Movement. 
 
The Ballethnic Dance company is one of only 3 black ballet companies in the US, and the founders, Waverly T. Lucas II and Nena Gilreath, were dancers with the original Black ballet company, Dance Theatre of Harlem. They came here and built a company. They own a studio in East Point.

Exhibitions

  • Culture Shock : Photography by John Gutmann

    Culture Shock focuses on an early period of creative flowering for the Jewish photographer, a German refugee who arrived in the U.S. during the Great Depression. Continuing through January 2, 2022, the exhibition showcases over 60 vivid images of American popular culture that Gutmann captured as only an outsider could.

  • History With Chutzpah : Remarkable Stories of the SouthernJewish Adventure

    The 250+ artifacts, documents, photographs and oral histories in the exhibition, reveal stories from the generations before us and offer you a journey into Jewish culture unlike any other. Enhanced by personal interviews, oral history excerpts and interactive screen displays. Jewish Southerners adapted to, adopted or affected the society that surrounded them, while simultaneously retaining and celebrating their unique cultural heritage. Some had bold ideas that led to innovation and change, and some held values that impelled them to rebel against ‘the way things were,’ and others accepted the culture and customs of the South.
