The Survivor and the Translator by and with Leeny Sack

A video screening of Leeny Sack's critically acclaimed 1980 production.

The archival footage of Leeny Sack's The Survivor and the Translator moves through the screen and possess the present through a contemporary performance ritual and haunting unlike anything experienced before. The living archive mesmerizes and calls to question where we are today.

"Leeny Sack's autobiographical one-woman show, The Survivor and the Translator [...] stages an attempt to recuperate language and experience through acts of translation [...] Sack's performance is part of the tradition of recovering, remembering, and recounting Holocaust narratives. Her performance [is] shaped by the tension between an experience that cannot be assimilated and words that defy translation. [...] Sack's story is personal to Sack's family, but also to millions of other families."  -- Carol Martin, Theatre of the Real
