ZWERGE Aug 7 and 8th
I’m so excited for the premiere of ZWERGE. We’ve been working very hard and we’re thrilled to share this story with NYC.
Starring up and coming ingénue Sofiya Cheyenne, Dixon Place along with Little Shadow Productions presents Zwerge. Zwerge focuses on the lives of a family of seven dwarves who survived genetic testing in Auschwitz. Based on an inspiring true story, Zwerge seamlessly melds the use of various forms of puppetry, live actors and live music to create a wholly unique and compelling theatrical experience. Zwerge is the recipient of two Jim Henson Foundation Grants, a residency at the National Puppetry Conference and multiple writing residencies at the Tony-Award Winning Eugene O’Neill Theater Center.
Created by Deborah Hertzberg and Jean Marie Keevins and adapted by Keevins and Director Spencer Lott, Zwerge takes us on a journey that explores the duplicity, compassion, horrors and resiliency of humanity.
* Recipient of a Jim Henson Foundation Project Grant (2014) and Seed Grant (2012)
