Pupils from Millfields Primary School in Wivenhoe have been working with Actor, Ben Livingstone and Lakeside Artistic Director, Barbara Peirson, over the past few weeks to learn about the Kinderstransport through improvisation, tableaux and testimonies.
To prepare for their performance on campus, pupils have been hearing klezmer music, singing and writing imaginary letters home from their chosen characters who have had to flee Nazi Germany for their new lives in England. All of these activities will come together in a piece of Street Theatre they have devised that will be performed at 1pm and 1.40pm in the squares.
Venue: In the Squares, University of Essex Colchester campus
Date: Thursday 31 January, 1.00pm - 1.15pm and 1.40pm - 1.55pm.
Part of Holocaust Memorial Week 2019.
