For the Love of Art, A Valentine's Triad Arts Weekend

Triad Arts Weekend: February 14, 2014

At an age when David Ford's big obsession was where to find the next wiffle ball game, Petr Ginz was inventing secret codes, making watercolors, and writing novels—five of them by the age of 14! Petr was murdered by the Nazis two years later, but his amazing life and the many lives he touched in and out of the concentration camps are remembered and celebrated in the Wake Forest University production of Embers and Stars: The Story of Petr Ginz. It’s Valentine’s Day, and film scholar Mary Dalton takes us Behind the Scenes to answer that nagging question: what exactly makes a movie Romantic. Winston-Salem Forsyth County Arts Council President and CEO Jim Sparrow’s got an artistic vision that’ll rock—jazz, classical and folk—your world. And then we’re off to the dance at High Point University. Cara Hagan is here with a choreographer’s keen eye for storytelling. We wrap things up with Touring Theatre of NC actor Camilla Millican and a Valentine’s Day Card that’ll take you Over the Edge.

Listen to Triad Arts as broadcast at 8:35 AM and 5:44 PM.

Petr Ginz was a boy genius. He grew up in Prague in the 1930s. Before his 15th birthday he had already written and illustrated five novels, taught himself new languages, and established a periodical magazine.    

Still as a child Petr immersed himself in sociology, literature, painting, geography and various technical fields as well. Sadly, many of these pursuits took place in the Terezin concentration camp. Petr was eventually assigned to one of the last trains to Auschwitz where he died in the gas chambers in 1944.
