The Counterminers return to London with brand new shows across 2024.
“When you’re watching us dance, see us dancing. And when you’re listening, hear us sing”.
The Counterminers presents “Not Even The Dogs” written by Josh Baumring-Gledhill and Josh Myers.
Amongst the desolate and decaying city of Warsaw, once the Jewish world’s epicentre of learning, art and culture, Emanuel Ringelblum takes a stand. Together with the city’s Jewish academics, he will create the Oyneg Shabes archive, and try to ensure the survival of the Jewish people and their collective, diverse, beautiful voice.
As the walls of the Ghetto close in and its population dissolves, what will the archive become? A distant memory of a forgotten people? Or the last whisper of Jewish dances, poetry, songs; the final ember of Ringelblum’s ancient people?
“Not Even The Dogs” runs at the The Old Red Lion Theatre from 16th to 20th January 2024.
