THE CARDIAC SHADOW BY CLAY MCLEOD CHAPMAN
Co-production with Northern Light Theatre
January 18 – February 2, 2019 at the Studio Theatre in the ATB Financial Arts Barns (10330-84 Ave)
Based on a true story – Four women are procured from the Ravensbruck concentration camp, hand-selected by SS Second Lieutenant Dr. Sigmund Rascher for a series of experiments specifically designed to measure the human body’s endurance to extreme temperatures – tests that would benignly come to be known as the Cold Conference. 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?
