Choreography by Blair Bodie

Performed by: Hannah Bos, Hanna Cheek, Alexa Scott-Flaherty, Jordan Simmons, and Paul Thureen

Four women were procured from the Ravensbruck concentration camp, hand-selected by SS Second Lieutenant Dr. Sigmund Rascher, Air Force physician. These four women were “volunteered” for a series of experiments that would eventually come to be known as the cold conference — tests specifically designed to determine the endurance of the human body to extreme temperatures. The voices of these four women have since disappeared. Where does the human spirit go when the body must remain behind, frozen inside an atrocity?

This performance is presented as a part of The New, New Stuff a three week festival of new and emerging artists. Click here for full festival listings.
