Inspired by the true story of Corrie ten Boom and set in the war zone of Dutch Haarlem in 1944, Hiding Place is a portrayal of divinely inspired forgiveness in the midst of desperate and unimaginable circumstances.
Ballet Magnificat! Omega taps into the struggle of two sisters, Corrie and Betsie ten Boom, as they search for possibilities to help their life-long Jewish neighbors and friends find security in a small hiding place built in the wall of their home, only to be discovered and transported to the concentration camp of Ravensbrück to face struggles far exceeding their wildest imagination.
Choreographer Jiri Sebastian Voborsky unveils this heroic story with a great level of drama, passion, pain, yet joy, and ultimately hope, as he brings before the audience the challenge to believe the unbelievable – the power of forgiveness through Jesus Christ.
Coming to the Niagara Region May 5, 2009 in Port Colborne. Visit the Home page to purchase tickets.
Hiding Place is a story of hope and the power of love. We want to use this production to support a local organization which operates on the same principles—the South Niagara Life Centre. Ticket proceeds will go to the work of SNLC.
