Buttons is the first collaboration between Joni-Rae Carrack and Dana Segal who together founded Sort Of Theatre in 2013
Joni is a puppeteer.
Dana is not.
Dana is a Jew.
Joni is not.
Buttons is a show about their journey to Auschwitz and the stories they discovered on the way.
Using a mixture of live performance, spoken word, shadow puppetry and object manipulation Joni and Dana attempt to recount the story of their ‘sort of’ holiday, whilst exploring the themes of memory, family and war.
We are hoping to bring these stories to life and to keep the legacy of the Holocaust in the public consciousness, especially as we reach the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
Buttons was proudly premiered to a sold-out audience at the Little Angel Theatre’s FIRST Festival 2014
