It is an imaginary love story set in Poland during the Second World War, presented in a narrative form. The choreography aims to highlight the cultural diversity of the Jewish community comapred to the SS authorities, sometimes using a subtle satirical vein.

The choreographic story engages different themes, combining dynamics and entertainment, while alternating very dark moments with very poetic yet cruel moments.

The historically accurate and careful choreographic concept was conceived in memory of all the victims of the Holocaust.

“So that’s how we live our lives. No matter how deep and fatal the loss, no matter how important the thing that’s stolen from us – that’s snatched right out of our hands – even if we are left completely changed, with only the outer layer of skin from before, we continue to play out our lives this way, in silence. We draw even nearer to the end of our allotted span of time, bidding it farewell as it trails off behind.”

“Sputnik Sweetheart” by Murakami Haruki
