But Where There’s Hope, There’s Life, focuses on the Holocaust and communicating the impact and importance of this event in our history. The work comes at a time in our country where we are questioning the ideas of immigration, human rights, and civility for others. Each of the participating faculty will bring their unique expertise to the project, allowing a rich, artistic experience for viewers. Sequences of small audience groups traveling through the venues will take place each night. Audience members will travel with a virtual “tour guide” to various locations. The “tour guide” (a performance studies student at Texas A&M) will lead audience members from the beginnings of the Holocaust (1933) through liberation (1945). In this transitional journey, the guide will give the audience historical background information supported by materials and experiences to help set the tone for the next leg of their journey. Audience members might be asked to participate in guided activities as they travel through the work. This type of nomad style theatre experience will enhance the feeling of not being fully in control of the situation and add to the sense of homelessness felt by many victims of the Holocaust. Concluding this experience, audience members will be brought through a question and answer session in order for them to not only decompress from the experience but to interact with the creators and performers of the work.
