Notes on The Hidden Room:
Based on the life and art of Jewish/Ukrainian artist, author and holocaust victim, Bruno Schulz, The Hidden Room intertwined aspects of Schulz’s life and death with his surrealistic drawings and writings. The performance evoked the many layered stories that are Schulz’s life and imagination through movement, imagery and the highly stylized manipulation of objects and puppets.
