Description

Felix Fibich was a dancer and one of the few professional choreographers who worked in the Yiddish theater. Together with his wife and partner Judith Berg (1905-1992) he collaborated with well-known Yiddish theater figures in Poland, such as the comedy team Dzigan and Shumacher and the composer Henekh Kon. They performed in Russia during World War II and then came to the United States. The couple drew from Jewish sources for inspiration for their dance pieces.
