The Kennedy Dancers (a professional contemporary Dance Company for 38 years)
presents a “DocuDance” Film about real life events in Jersey City in 1942.
Set in a secret prisoner of war camp
(Caven Point) in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty,
“Caven Point” artistically weaves the stories of
young Italian American girls who visit the Italian prisoners
in order to assist them
to write letters back home supporting
the resistance to the Germans.
Diane Dragone’s mother’s story is blended into
documentary story-telling along with
Dragone’s original choreography
(performed by the Kennedy Dancers)
and is set to a score of original music composed
by Antonio Louis Scarmolin.
This blend of narrative mixed with choreography
and music is directed by Tom Horan and
becomes an effective blend of storytelling through the Arts.
”Caven Point” also features actual participants
who went to Caven Point ,
some of whom’s lives were changed forever.
What originally began as a State Department initiative during World War II
becomes an artistic capsule of lives
being changed through common acts of humanity.
