30 high school students from Germany, Poland, and Hungary meet each other, visit charged locations, and express their impressions through theater, music, dance, and writing. From September 6 - 12, 2015 we explored Westerplatte, Stutthof concentration camp, the Gdansk Shipyards and the birth of the Solidarity movement. The project ended in the city of Sopot with a multi-disciplinary performance created by the participants.

Sound in the Silence is an international, interdisciplinary performance project that centers on historical education. We focus on charged locations that hold historical significance to our collaborators, participants, and partners. Over the course of a week a select group of international students, artists, and teachers are introduced to each other’s culture, history, and identity. Through workshops and performance we express how our narratives intersect and collide. The goal of the project is to connect people to history through art and to foster international dialogue.
