Description:
This contemporary ballet choreographed by Helen and Emily Garner and Bryony Sullivan will take you on an emotional, yet uplifting journey, as these young performers sensitively portray the harrowing true-life story of Anka Bergman, who survived the Holocaust of WWII with her daughter, Eva, born on the train to the Mauthausen camp. With original music from composer Alex Cook, who was inspired by listening to Eva talk about her mother's journey. The piece was performed for Anka at her 95th birthday, and since her death in 2013 is now dedicated to her memory.
