Dylan Fresco: The Holocaust and Me
Dylan Fresco: The Holocaust and Me

Arrowhead Center for the Arts | Grand Marais MN

Dylan Fresco’s “The Holocaust and Me” relates through music and story how he came to realize the impact of the Holocaust on his family and his own life, despite his being born decades after it happened. The performance includes songs on guitar, sung in Ladino, the language based on medieval Spanish and Hebrew spoken by many Sephardic Jews. After the performance, Dylan will facilitate a critical reflection period.

Dylan Fresco is a musician, theater artist, writer, and educator. A graduate of Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theatre, he’s created solo performances that have been sold-out hits at Fringe Festivals across the country. Dylan has written music and helped create plays with Upstream Arts, the Children’s Theatre Company, and multiple organizations serving people with disabilities. He recently helped lead the creation of the Guthrie-premiered original play “Birds Sing Differently Here,” in collaboration with a group of Iraqi-Americans and the Iraqi and American Reconciliation Project.

Tickets for this event are on sale now at (no added fees, search “Arrowhead Center for the Arts”) and at the door night of show (box office opens at 6 pm).
