Four singers and a solo dancer lead the audience in an extraordinary auditory excavation based on Courtney Angela Brkic’s heartbreaking memoir The Stone Fields: Love and Death in the Balkans.
Drawn to Bosnia by her family history, Brkic joined a UN forensics team helping to excavate the mass graves at Srebrenica. Yet among the horrors of war, she discovered remnants of an extraordinary romance between her Catholic grandmother Angelka and a young Jewish man, forced into hiding by the Fascists.
Using new oral testimony, Remnants presents Brkic’s fascinating story in her voice, embedded in layers of physical theatre and dance, traditional Balkan music and new electronic textures.
