Based on a real life story, this is the life of the girl who fought to stand up straight, when the ground was fracturing beneath her.
FRAGMENTS played to sold out audiences in May 2021 and November 2020.
“Let’s not leave each other unknown…”
Through the fog of Alzheimer’s, Austrian-born Herta wrestles with the foundational moments of her past, including a childhood involvement with the Hitler Youth. Through interactions with her caregiver, her estranged daughter and her own fractured memories, Herta is forced to confront deep-held regrets and hard truths left unspoken. Fragments is a physical narrative; a unique fusion of dance and theater centered on one fundamental question: “How much of ourselves must we give to the ones we love?”
Fragments is conceived, directed & choreographed by Mandie Rapoza. It is written by Brian Kettler and features an entirely original score by Kate Marlais.
