Singing Swallows


Event Date: 23 June 2021 to 3 July 2021
Author / Presenters: Romi Kupfer

A beautiful and symbolic representation of a storytelling experience that cannot be replicated. An early start to understanding the Holocaust, connecting to young peoples lives through voice recording and visual storytelling.

SINGING SWALLOWS is a physical theatre performance telling stories from four Holocaust survivors. The audience experiences all sound through individual headphones, which they are given at the beginning of the performance. Through these headphones, each Holocaust story is shared by the voice of a young person, as the survivors the stories are based on were of young age during the Holocaust. In between the verbal storytelling, the performers on stage activate the recyclable set, bringing to life the personal experiences heard through the headphones. 

SINGING SWALLOWS will have audio description and open captions.
