About the Event:                  

'We invite you to hear from a pair of Holocaust survivors and one of their descendants, over a delicious brunch. There will the opportunity to reflect on their life stories and on how, as the next generation, we can keep the memory alive. Or which memories to keep alive. Or whose memories.

Hang on, why are we doing this? And why so much food?'


How can we honour the histories we inherit whilst breaking free from them? Can the weight of inheritance be turned into a gift?


Holocaust Brunch uses comedy and beigels to explore whether we can heal from ancestral trauma. Bringing to life the true stories of two Holocaust survivors connected to Tamara, this solo show tears open an intergenerational wound, probing why we remember the Holocaust – and what it might look like to forget.       

Food will be provided as part of this performance.
