‘Music and Memorialisation: Performing Holocaust Testimony’ is the title of a research seminar to be presented during the University of Chester’s Professional Development Week at the end of March. It will be given by PtJA’s Project Consultant, David Fligg, who is Visiting Professor at the Chester’s Faculty of Arts and Media. As well as focusing on his theatrical presentation ‘Gideon Klein: Portrait of a Composer’, David will demonstrate how the PtJA’s five international festivals utilise recent research of Holocaust archives to reanimate music and theatre once thought lost or destroyed.
