The Survivor and the Translator


A performance art piece, which the creator, who is also the sole performer, says is "about not having experienced the Holocaust by a daughter of concentration camp survivors." In Sack's work, she recreates actual memories through highly theatrical representations, using such minimal props as a bed to recreate a transport train, a table with a candle, and a rocking chair. The piece suggests the impossibility of representing, comprehending, and translating the experiences of the Holocaust.
