THE CHARLOTTE SALOMON PROJECT

Genre: Drama
Inspired by the life's work of a woman artist killed at Auschwitz in 1944

The texts, visuals, and actions of the play are drawn from the collection of over 1,300 paintings created by the artist Charlotte Salmon during World War II and collected by the artist in a volume called Life? Or Theater? The paintings illustrate her family's dark secret history, her sheltered girlhood during the rise of the Nazi regime, her development into an artist, and her troubled love affair with her stepmother's operatic voice teacher who became her obsession.
