Victoria dancer and choreographer Lori Hamar has produced a contemporary dance work, called Blood Line, based on the internment of Ukrainians during WWI.
Although she has Ukrainian blood herself, this was an event she knew nothing about. In the process of researching it, and her cultural heritage, she came across Kobzar's Children. She was touched by Danny's story, "Andriy's Break" which tells the story of an escapee from one of the internment camps. She then asked Marsha's permission to use spoken excerpts of it in her work, which debuted in Victoria last Sunday, January 30, 2011.
