WINNER of the 2018/19 Elizabeth Sterling Haynes Awards for Outstanding Multi-Media Design (Katrina Beatty) and Outstanding Choreography (Good Women Dance Collective).

Co-production with Northen Light Theatre

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?
