Have you heard the story of Franceska Mann?
In 1943, a Polish dancer shot two Nazi guards and sparked a riot - one that became a symbol of fierce resistance in the face of murderous oppression. Passed down from teller to teller, her courage became a myth to inspire hope and vengeance in equal measure.
Devised by a cast of seven multi-talented creatives, Nora Productions’ latest show weaves together dance, theatre and live music to tell her story once more.
Content warning: This show contains flashing lights and loud noises, as well as scenes of violence. Please be aware that some of the scenes are set in a concentration camp in 1943.
