An embodied, site-specific investigation of identity, translation and politics of place, that calls a past life to the present to reimagine one woman's story of survival in World War II Poland.

Using the discovered witness testimony of her unknown ancestor (a Polish Jewish woman) as primary source, Michelle Levy is working with institutions and individuals in Poland to piece together who this woman might have been, and retrace her path across present day Poland. The investigation will result in a multi-media performance accompanied by an exhibition and publication.
