Anusim is inspired by a rarely told story in Jewish history – the 1497 decree of the Portuguese King Manuel I forcing Jews to practice their religion in secret instead of facing the most fierce persecution, conversion, expulsion or worse. The Jews were given a 20-year reprieve, when they could maintain their Judaism in secret but publicly had to practice Catholicism. They were called “New Christians.” Eventually many assimilated, but some Jewish practices remained as “Family Traditions.” These themes of loss, cultural annihilation and forced conversion resonate with many different populations in the past and even today.
Anusim builds on a pivotal dance performed by Dance NOW! entitled Odisea, choreographed by Carolyn Dorfman in 2005 and restaged on Dance NOW! in 2015, Odisea chronicles the physical, emotional and spiritual journey of twenty-three Jews leaving similar persecution in Recife, Brazil in 1654 and their journey and ultimate landing on American soil in New Amsterdam (New York City).
Anusim, what is hidden is never lost  has been created as part of an International Cultural Partnership with Dança Em Diálogós, our partner company in Portugal. Dance NOW! will be sharing the stage at the Casino Estoril on June 24th to perform the complete work with both companies. This project is funded by Miami Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs with the support of the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Miami Beach Sister Cities International and the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce.
