Babi Yar Park
About This Piece
Denver Arts & Venues’ Public Art Program commissioned “White Mirror,” an original site-specific public dance performance for Babi Yar Park, by internationally renowned choreographer Robert Sher-Machherndl of Lemon Sponge Cake Contemporary Ballet. The performance was Oct. 4, 2015 at Babi Yar Park in Denver, marking the first time Denver Public Art had commissioned dance as public art. Babi Yar Park serves as a memorial to those lost during the massacre at Babi Yar, Ukraine, and other victims of the Holocaust.
On International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2015, Denver Arts & Venues’ Public Art Program and the Mizel Museum presented the short films on the making of Denver’s first original, public and site-specific dance performance at Babi Yar Park.
These four films tell the story of the creation of “White Mirror”
