"Defining Auschwitz to the emerging generation."
Primo is a compelling play, performed by an ensemble cast. It is a fictional account that follows the noted Italian writer and Holocaust survivor, Primo Levi, through the last day of his life as he becomes consumed by distant memories of Auschwitz. The play emerges as a timeless depiction of the death camp driven by the prisoner’s experience, defined by the survivor’s memory. Dialogue alone cannot fully portray genocide in a theatrical setting. The play interweaves dialogue and narration rendering a unique and dynamic performance.
