The show centres around Rowan's German grandmother's stories from her childhood under the Nazi regime, using one true story to explore a rich tapestry of themes including: memory, trauma-recovery, waltzes, fascism, history, handicraft, identity, folk-song and bird-song, family and war. It is at once an urgent and very relevant anti-war piece, which questions our collective handling of 'dark histories' in the present day political climate, as well as an uplifting and poignant celebration of small acts of resistance, transformation, human empathy and hope.
