Come to Grace and Holy Spirit Church on Sunday, January 26 at 3 p.m. for a unique performance marking the UN Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27.  Using the sanctuary of Grace and Holy Spirit Church as the set, The Arts at Grace will present Hugh McElyea’s Tenebrae: The Passion of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

No charge for admission; post performance reception for audience and artists.

McElyea’s theatrical work uses the ancient service of Tenebrae to create the last hours of Lutheran pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Imprisoned by the Nazis in Germany for actively standing up against acts of hatred, Bonhoeffer’s execution took place a few days before World War II ended in Europe. Featured performers will be Steven Stull, Bonhoeffer; Dawn Pierce, his fiancé Maria; David Neal, narrator; SUNY Cortland Choral Union, a professional chamber ensemble, and Opus Ithaca children’s choir.
